Yesterday's work

First - thanks to all who left comments over the last couple of days - glad you enjoyed the story of our Sunday ride! And yes, Rene, I feel the same way about the B-52s (Love Shack being my fave - it's great for working out).

Now, back to my ms report. I didn't get quite as much done as I'd hoped, BUT - at least I did something :-)

During the day I worked on adding the hero's emotions to my opening scene. Like most men, he didn't want to tell me how he was feeling ;-). But as several people have pointed out, they really need to KNOW what's going on his head. So I had to force him to tell me. It was like pulling teeth, but I did find out a little of what's going on in there and put it into words for the reader. Not sure yet how good those words are, but it's a start.

Then after Sean went to bed last night, I did more FDin30D work on the ms - specifically, using the Supplemental Outline worksheet (# 18), to organize the changes I've noted need to be made to the ms.

Today I have to go to a funeral, so won't be able to get any real work done till this evening. But some things are more important.

Hope everyone has a productive day :-)

Men, always with the silence. What is up with that? Just makes you want to torture them all the more.

Sounds like you're being VERY productive, Tess. WTG!!!

So glad to hear about the progress, even if you did have to fight to get your hero's emotions out of him. {{{HUGS}}} on the funeral.
