Sorry I haven’t updated this blog in a while. Between writing and looking for actual work, blogging has taken a back seat. I’m back on it now, though, and I’ll hopefully be doing more of it over time.
In previous posts, I’ve talked about the part of Long-Distance Dedications that is “the Tavia stories”. I’m actually still working on those. I have two of the three written, and I’m closing in (slowly) on the third. I didn’t write them in chronological order, though. I’m working on the middle one right now. The stories in this series are:
“Year of the Leap”
“Leaving the Union”
Of the three, “Worth” has been the most challenging by far, because it involves four separate scenes in the space of two days. I have one of those scenes (the first one) written. The third and fourth scenes are in my head, in what I think will be almost their final form. It’s the second scene that’s giving me fits. I mention this only because I don’t usually write stories this way. Most of the time, I’ll write all the way through. Once, I wrote half of the story, then filled in the end, then wrote the last quarter of the story that was unfinished. Anyway, the way I’m going about it now is a slow process, but it at least keeps me writing.
Keep watching this space. Hopefully, in a couple of days, I’ll be able to report that I’ve finished the story, and I’ll be able to get the entire set of Tavia stories critiqued to see what needs tweaking. 🙂
