I’m not sure why I’ve been slowing down on the blogging. A lot of it is probably because I’m spending more time on actual writing these days, y’know, including some self-imposed deadlines on a really tough rewrite.
It’s not for lack of ideas. I get them when I’m riding the horse, when I’m running errands around town, even when I’m working on, y’know, the rewrite. But when I get to the computer, instead of opening up WordPress, I’m opening up Word and doing the writing thing.
We’ll see what happens when I get done with the rewrite. I am devising a writing process post because I’m using a different technique that I couldn’t have done before the iMac came into my life, and I may end up adopting the process for future long-form works. Having a chapter outline open while I work on the MS is turning out to be rather productive and I can make my notes about a rather complex plot structure and what I need to do in future chapters/modify outline right there and then rather than scribble ideas on PostIts and scraps of paper that I can never find when I need them.
But yeah. Netwalker Uprising is possessing my brain right now. When I’m not writing or doing house stuff, I’m reading Anathem. For some reason I bounced off of it before (probably because like all Stephenson’s work except for Zodiac, the first third is world building and slow, and I tried to read it during the school year). Between the two, there’s not a lot of extra stuff available at the moment.
The last Allan Schore seminar blew my socks off as well.
I am not quite at the point where I need to list posts I’m planning here. For one thing, I’ll lose them. But until July 1, I’m pretty much in the state of “possessed by Uprising” brain murble.
