Didn't get to write after all... my brother in law got sick so my husband didn't get to go hunting... so we were back on the remodeling. We rolled mud and stomped... and rolled mud and stomped. And scraped dry mud off the trim. And I now have mud in bad places.
But our bedroom now has textured walls! And we have new furniture floating around in ordered cyberspace somewhere, and my floor and baseboards in this room are probably the cleanest they have EVER been. Something about moving things around that haven't been moved in five years... eeeyyyyyeechhhh... you find some nasty stuff. I could probably eat off them now. Well until tomorrow, then the sheet rock dust will be back. Because there's that fifth wall called the ceiling that we have to do.
Anyway! I'm itching to get more queries out now that I've crossed that line, but since Jan 5 seems to be the magic date, I'm trying to wait so mine isn't in the giant email slush pile. I'm also itching to start my next ms, but there are so many unknowns I need to figure out first. Last time I just wrote anyway, and let the plot work itself out as I went, but I refuse this time. I want a plan and an outline, so I'm trying to fight the urge to just GO with it.
Do you outline? Do you structure? Or do you just run with it?
