Midweek Check-in

Today’s post isn’t going to be anything special. I just thought I would share an update on my latest story, as well as a few thoughts about how it is going.

First off, I have a confession to make. Until today, I had only written eight words.

“Damn it, Chas! Just trust me for once!”

I thought it was a good start, but I was having a lot of trouble going on from there. My main problem was that I kept trying to think of the dream that I thought was a good basis for the story, and I had a lot of trouble realizing that it really wasn’t.

Today, I admitted to myself that the dream was not going to work, and I needed to come up with something else. So I started writing, working in the parts of the dream that would work, but leaving out the parts that didn’t. The end result was over 700 words that I am fairly pleased with.

The story isn’t quite finished, but I think I should be able to wrap it up without too much effort. I’ll fill you in on the end result on Sunday.

And now, bring on the zombies!

    My advice would be to leave out the zombies, but it is your story, so do what you like, as you usually do. I like historical romances, so I am not much of a judge for you. I am just glad you are writing so much.
