I totally wrote myself into a corner with Pansy this week. I was chugging along and then had the thought, if I write the scene this way, I have no idea how to get them out of it. Then I shrugged and did it anyway.
After my writing session, the solution smacked me in the head. The funny thing? The answer was in the very first scene I wrote, back when Pansy was supposed to be a response to a flash fiction prompt (and 43,000 words later …).
This book is weird. In more ways than one.
- Pansy ~5,600 words.
- Started The Southeast Review’s 30-Day Writer’s Regimen
- Playing Soldier
- Playing Soldier ~ I like those fast markets–no messing around for them.
- The Weight of Secrets ~ this was actually a rejection from last week that I forgot about. Another benefit of Write 1/Sub 1–you totally forget the rejections the second they happen.
So. Yeah. I won that pitch contest I entered. And now I’m thinking … thoughts. Not necessarily deep thoughts, mind you. Still. I’m thinking them.
