Well, can’t avoid Those Scenes anymore. In writing all around the pre- and post-battle scenery of Book 4, I arrived at, well…the battle scenery.
Did I mention that it’s just yea-and-verily not my forte?
Well, as I always say, nothing ventured is nothing gained. I have a lot to think about here in terms of strategic mapping of what I want to happen within the story, and at the same time, to keep a proper narration flow. Gayle is awesome at reminding me to pace the story properly; multitasking is also a kicking motivation. The thing is, I’m not really keen yet on processing Book 3 for the first time until Book 4 has at least the first draft made final.
In other words, right back to writer’s block I go.
In the meantime, I’m still plugging away at this age in jazz music piece that I want to see out and about; got stuck on that too. Special thanks to Oli Silk of the UK for helping me out on this one, both as a performer below the Median Age in Smooth Jazz and as a volunteer reader audience.
I also want to know why my workplace is empty at 9:45 on a Monday.
Not going to be one to complain, though. ‘Tis the off-season, so these sorts of pauses in the workday are common. It lets me relax, to boot.
Prepped and ready with my blog-chain post for May as well. It’s the topic I’ve been waiting for: the musical soundtrack to my story. It will be a hell of a long post, but I will also embed Youtube music links to the songs that resonate best with certain scenes. I will try not to spoilerize much.
