This morning I woke up to the news that Matt Smith will be finishing his Doctor Who tenure with this year’s Christmas episode. Then I had tickets to the screening of The Dalek Asylum and The Angels Take Manhatten at my local cinema, so this evening I am awash with Doctor Who feels and didn’t get any writing done. I didn’t get any done yesterday, either, because I was visiting travel agents in the morning, then I was working overtime in the afternoon, and then I was treated to dinner from the boyfriend afterwards and didn’t feel like writing afterwards. And while we’re listing excuses, I got rather distracted this week by First of Her Kind, by WIPpet Wednesday buddy K. L. Schwengel, because it’s really good! (here is a link where you can get it for yourself.)
I did, however, get a reasonable amount of editing done on A More Complicated Fairytale prior to the weekend. In fact, I’m about a third of the way through it. This is the first time I’ve actually revisited a lot of it since, you know, writing it, so it’s not hard-going or anything. And the story is basically there, it’s just rewording things here and there and making sure that everything makes sense with the new opening. I will need to rework an upcoming bit and open up the document with the feedback from my beta reader gave me for the next section.
I have basically solved the issue I was having with Operation: Sugarplum, though it means not going in the direction I wanted to with this particular character. Which is a shame, but I’m sure she’ll be just as awesome this way.
That is basically it for this week, so have a video of a local muso I recently discovered. I really like this song because it pretty much sums up how my writer brain works. And he’s pretty adorable. This song is called “Mysteries Begin”.
