The weather (they say) is not how to open a book. But as of yet I haven't heard of it as a bad opener for a blog post :) and as it is awfully nice out today, I am saying, I am ready for summer.
I will be taking an online workshop all summer which is supposed to culminate in a 30,000 word novella by autumn, ie. September.
I hope I survive it! I may be missing here on Mb4 a little more often as my time will be at a premium. (I KNOWWWW, right???)
Last night, I spent hours listening to preliminary stuff and creating a rough outline and several character sketches. It was grueling I tell you. I am such a pantser--that to HAVE to outline, well, it was tough.
I did turn out a reasonable story idea from it though, so we will see how it goes. I must say I am more excited about the prospect than I have been in a long while.
So, here's to summer, all of you Murderers out there. Have you begun a work for this season? Maybe a beach story? A May to December romance?
Would you like for me to poke you into it? OK, here goes the sharp stick:
Use these items for your story:
A recent graduate from high school
An old abandoned station wagon
the color blue, like aqua, like ocean water
and .... a murder.
What? You thought I wouldn't include it???
Happy June, Murderers.
