Nearly finished the read through of the first draft. Once that's complete I'll go through it again making notes on what needs cutting/ adding/ moving etc. More work's needed towards the start of the MS: everything seems to happen relatively slowly and then Zoom! we're at the end. I also think I have too many subplots so I'll be choosing one to sideline. My plan is to have a bash at Diana Peterfreund's plot board technique to mark out what I have in an easy-to-see-at-a-glance kind of way and then I can move scenes around/ add them in and take them out more easily than doing it all directly in the MS. >.<

Everything's just slowed down this month. My brain's been treacled, all I want to do is sleep (where is the RAIN!?????!!!!!!!) and *&!$*&! persons across the road think that playing loud music until oh-dark-hundred and getting so drunk they need to call the ambulance/ paramedics/ police (and sometimes all three) EVERY WEEK is a fine and dandy thing to do on a work night. Grrrrrr.

In happier news, Alt.fiction is coming!

Alt.fiction is brilliant. I went last year and got a spot in a fantasy workshop with Mark Chadbourn which was brilliant. I don't think I'll be able to fit a workshop in this time as I want to go to all the Devil's Advocate panels, but we'll see! :)

Good luck with the plotboard, too. If you run into any snags, just leave a comment on my blog and I'll see if I can help.

Thanks, Diana! (I have all the equipment, it's just whether I can put it together in a meaningful way. That's this weekend's job.)
