Hot Seat Awaits...

da da dummmmmmm

Tomorrow night they will be looking at my opening scene.
What I am hoping for:


My Nano novel just took me for a ride that ended in all right turns. 
That damn thing was going no where.
I fought it and fought it and wanted to throw it out the window.  The people in my life screamed NOOOO!!! and so I didn't. 

We formed a writer's group recently and needed to submit a chapter.  I wanted to submit something current and yet I really had nothing current that I wanted critiqued.  So I blasted out a chapter (okay to those who suffer through these things with me it wasn't a blast) but I got the opening chapter finished and we will go over that tomorrow.

Problem is:  I have not finished the book and so I KNOW the chapter will change. 
Maybe entirely.
I am still in discovery trying to figure the whole thing out and so....
Is it my self defense mechanism?  Did I make it this way so that the criticism would sting less? Can't be certain of the answer... I suppose as long as it is not a continual thing I will be okay :)
I'll let you know how it goes.

As for the time thing.
So far, so good.

I've been able to do the things that I want to do.  After the Wonk podcast I've had time to read the blogs that I want to read and hell, I'm even blogging.  YaY!!


  1. Yeah, I guess it's another matter entirely, writing a chapter for the purpose of having it critiqued ;)

  2. Maybe you won't know until after more time (and chapters) have gone by...

    Yipee for your having your own space!
