I returned a book to the library unread. Big day for me, I guess. I couldn’t get into it, so I backed away and am not feeling guilty about not finishing it…not too much anyway.
So, I celebrated with a bit of a Buffy marathon. I really, really tired to deconstruct the episode arcs and the overall story arcs…you know research, but I got sucked in and watched like a watcher…er, viewer. Well, one thing at a time.
I did realize (something that I seem to need to rediscover with every story) that my WIP needs more action. I’m focused so much on the emotional arc of my characters that I forget they need an action to express it. No vamps to beat up in my story, but my characters need to make bad choices that make things more exciting.
