State of Isobael...

Two days before my BFF arrives! I'm so stoked. It's been three years, maybe four, since I last saw her.

We have plans! Mt. Rainier, Ocean Shores, Seattle... =)

Of course, it means writing will be nil, but I think I can accept that when it comes to a cherished friend.

We won't even discuss the lack of writing and frustration I've been having on this end.

Actually, we will.

Lately, it just seems that writing is more of a struggle than anything. I don't know if it's because of the worries I have going on outside of my writing life, or what, but nothing looks good. I'm trying to write Moonlight and Melodies, but it's gotten to the point where I hate the characters, I hate the setup, and the plot doesn't work.

In the mean time, I picked up a kit called "A Book in a Month" by Victoria Lynn Schmidt, Ph.D. I've skimmed it a couple of times but after plinking out 700 some words all day (granted, I also did do four loads of laundry, two loads of dishes, and made potato salad as well), and in a state of sobbing from frustration, I decided to apply myself to the steps in the book.

While I might not get a book written in a month, there are some good tips in it, some plotting strategies, although some of it I don't "get". My brain is wired a bit differently, I think. Some of the plotting ideas she has makes no sense to me.

Anyway, so there you have it.
