Outlining proceeds for the paranormal which got sidelined before Christmas due to Life! The Universe! Everything! I think I shall do the initial outlining on cards and then put the scenes up on a board (rather than doing a plot board at the end of draft zero) and see if that makes an appreciable difference in speed/ coherence or not. I'm still aiming to complete the revisions of the YA but I feel like a hamster spinning on a wheel whenever I look at that so it may need outside interference to get me back on track and make substantive improvements. We'll see.

It is now dark. (At 17:36hrs) Which means that dog walking will require bike lights for the hounds and a head torch for me. Last month I saw 13 shooting stars when I was out with the dogs; 10 in one night and mostly between Orion and the Pleiades. Will this month be better or worse? I will go off to investigate tonight! And then I will cough, for the house is still full of lergy. ::phbbbt::

Have it good!

Thanks for that! (And I'm lobbing star power your way now...there!)

For the revisions, it's a case of me dithering over 'do I tweak this?'/ 'should I rewrite this?' and the problem is that I just can't tell. Maybe 3 or 4 passes of tweaks with some rewriting will see it right but it's hard to know for sure. And the internal editor is firmly switched on then so, of course, the little voice is yelling in the back of my head: U R DOIN' IT WRONG!!11! Nyah. Nyah. ::Sigh:: I will never complain about revising short stories again.

Hope your writing goes well this year!
