Oops Again!

Forgot to post. I do have word count, but it's only on a synopsis and bible for the four book continuity so it doesn't really count. Still I'm making progress and I love what I'm working on.

For research, I watched a specific story line in Love Actually (love the fast forward on my dvd) and Made of Honor. I love movies, but never have time to sit and watch any so this was a real treat for me.

Now I've got all sorts of prewriting forms out, the letter from our editor and a rough synopsis. Today I'll try to figure out the characters and what keeps them apart/leads them to the black moment and why they should be together. Oh, and I do have names for them, too. Jayne and Tristan! Fun times ahead!

Hey... it's all working toward completing something. And, I'm pretty sure you're the only one of us on deadline, so you have to do what you have to do!

Thanks! I can't wait until I have actual story word count!!! But I always run into a problem because I haven't nailed down the conflicts enough when I reach the 2/3 point of the story. I'm trying to avoid that this time so doing a tad more prewriting than I normally do. We'll see if it works!
