A large duck

I snuck out of the house this morning to finish this week's pages, but I didn't have quite enough time. I'm hoping to make my goal later today.

Anyway, I feel like I'm back on track with the story. For a couple scenes, it seemed that plot was swirling around in a backwater, going nowhere. Now I'm heading back to the ocean again, and it feels good.

I'd cut those scenes, but I think I may have found what the story is actually about in them.

Maybe I can tighten them up and find a stronger emotional through line in revisions. Or a better approach. Even better would be if those scenes are perfect the way they are.

Yeah, I don't buy it, either.

Now I'm off to watch some cartoons and fill out the author questionnaire. Enjoy your Saturday.

ETA: I made my minimum goal for the week. It's not optimum, but it's done. I'll do better next week (except that it's mid-winter break and Mango Eater will be home on both of my big-goal writing days. Oh, well.

And the questionnaire is making me feel like a completely boring nobody. I have no "other fields of study or hobbies"!

Note to self: Become interesting by the end of the month.
