I've been sick for about a week.
That means reading and writing have been very difficult for my disadvantaged brain.
I did manage to get through most of the No Kiss Blogfest entries before dyslexia + exhaustion put me down with a migraine.
But I did get a query/blurb (version 1.0) written for Brake Fluid, Blood & Body Bags, otherwise known as Project #4.
Compared to the first query/blurb I ever wrote, (for Simon's Oath, nearly one year ago), I can see a vast improvement, not only in getting down to the heart of the story, but in capturing some of the *voice* of the main character.
Well, at least for my first try :) Editing, of course, is necessary.
If you're bored or curious, I've updated my 'What I'm Writing' page and thrown that sucker down.
Critique away, my friends. Shred it up and feed it back to me.
For now, I shall sleep.
Hope you feel better soon. Hey, a query is a great thing to get done. Those things take me weeks to write!ReplyDelete
I think the query is really well done. It piqued my interest.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you're under the weather. But sickness aside, sounds like you've a busy writer.ReplyDelete
Sleep much and get busy with the vitamin C. Like your blog, good luck with project #4.ReplyDelete
The fact that your are getting anything done when your health is only a 2.0 is amazing. If I was a 2.0 I would be stuck in bed and my MAC would be on its own for a while. Plus you worked on queries...ugh! Feel better :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the well-wishings. It's kindof a joke in my family that, starting October 1st, I'm sick until the beginning of March.ReplyDelete
So I'm used to getting stuff done, even while running a high fever ;) It does make reading & writing a heck of a lot more difficult though
I find, since I'm a hopeless pantser, that writing a query/blurb of my story (even if I'm only a couple thousand words into it) help me solidify what's important to the main character... the stakes, so after that, I can freely wander around the story and figure it out as I go along, but having the blurb/query is a signpost to bring be back when I stray too far.
