Sunday

I am writing this from my hotel room. It is a nice room, a suite actually. The Fairly Oddparents is on the television and my boy has had me awake for an hour. I would take him downstairs for breakfast, but I need to get him dressed and his clothes are in the other room where his mother is trying to sleep.

My word count, while a little behind schedule is not so far behind that I can't catch up again (only 300 words as of last night). I am really getting into a lot of subplots that I wasn't expecting. They work well in the story and I am glad they have been found. It is giving the story a much more rounded feel to it than the linear story I wrote last year.

As long as we are talking well rounded stories, you should head over to Aaron and Jameson's blogs to find the locations for their newest published stories. Both are excellent little reads this fine Sunday morning.

And now I am back home. It was nice to write in Mark Twain's backyard though.

At least you're getting the story down. Well done.

A nice, round story is a noble thing.

Mmm. Subplots are like fun sized candy bars : )

I hope you had a great weekend! Subplots keep the story moving forward. Can I borrow a few? :)

Jamie Eyberg said...

Danielle- Not nearly fast enough.

Aaron- I agree. It is also a lot more fun to write.

Nat- yum. (now, where did I put the kid's candy bags?)

K.C.- it was a very nice weekend. Hannibal, MO is nice this time of the year.
