Been a while

Sweet mercy, has it really been since June that I've put anything up? Where did summer go? Much as I look forward to winter, it feels like the time just swooshed by (much like deadlines).

Almost finished the scene breakdowns. 'But that was supposed to happen ages ago.' you say. Yes, but as ever, my optimistic view of getting things done was destroyed by the arrival of our new daughter, in June. Thus, in my forgetting of how much work a newborn actually is, my timing is a bit off. Oh well, some things are worth shoving schedules around for. Nevertheless, I've almost broken the story down, and let me say, there are some pretty cool scenes I'm planning. Hopefully I can pull them off and get the impact I'm aiming for. It felt pretty good to get done what I have, actually, so I'm not too worked up over being behind.

Since I'm sneaking a post in at work on lunch, I shall leave you all to get back to work. However, more (and more regular) to follow.

Congrats on the new baby! And it's good to hear that you continue to make forward progess on your story. I just got a new job so I am still working on managing my time. Hopefully once I'm out of training I'll have more time to do things at my desk and then we'll see what happens!

Thanks Tina. I'm getting there, in fits and starts. Outlining can get pretty dull, but I know myself well enough to know that without a framework, I'll just blunder around flinging prose everywhere.

Congrats to you on the new job (haven't been around the blogs lately). I've tried to get stuff done at work, and it's hit and miss. Still, even one more line, or even a single word is more than there was before. Bite-size progress is fine with me.
