Ugh.

Wednesday, August 03, 2005

Back to work. I've been off since Friday, and kinda got use to lazing around. Anywho, I did a lot of 2 steps forward 1 step back on the novella over the week-end--revising and tweaking--but I'm officially on chapter two. And not only that, when I converted the 8 measly TNR12 single spaced pages to Courier 12 'exactly' 25 lines it worked out toe 21 pages! Very pleased about that.

The first act is over in the story, so today I'll be concentrating on writing an chapter outline of sorts. If each chapter works out to apprx 20 pages, then I only have 4 more chapters to conclude the story and need to make sure each scene has impact re character arc and emotional development, especially with all the sex that has to happen given the target genre. The good thing about this is, I feel in a really good position to write an outline. I even managed to do up a one line pitch blurb yesterday, and those things are not easy, let me tell you.

Later,
Jaye

I had to come back just long enough to look at the image of "those lips"!

Danica said...

OMG!!! Is that Tony? He's alive!!! Oh, how I've missed that man.

Oh right. Jaq's blog. :) It sounds like you're making some great progress! Keep up the good work!

An EXCELLENT one-line pitch, I might add. ;-)

Sasha said...

Way to keep at it, Jaye!.

I can't wait to read more. :)

Jaye said...

LOL Danica, that's quite all right, that was my reaction too!

Tony, I"m sorry, I removed your link, but I'll add it back. I thought you'd decided to just fade from the blogosphere. :-)

Thanks guys, I'm having a blast writing this ms. Who knew sex could be such fun. ;-)

Jaye said...

Well, I guess it was nice of you to drop by Tony, I see you did do a fade out....

btw, Cat. One line burbs are a Beeyotch to write.

One LIners suck! LOL I'm exhausted and off for the next five days. The only thing on my agenda is BN tomorrow and a spoil-myself lunch. Otherwise it's vegetation time!
