I had been going to write a Running In Place Commentary, because I ran in place on the mini-tramp today. However, in looking at my WordPress notifications, I saw some interesting comments on yesterday’s post. One in particular gave me my topic for today’s post.
Fellow blogger Mark Bialczak suggested I declare next month Finish That Novel May. What a marvelous idea! Like NaNoWriMo only I don’t have to write the whole damn thing in 30 days. For one thing, May is 31 days. Already I’m ahead of the game. And I have a lot written on this novel. Some needs to be cut, some new scenes written, lots of organization…
So that is my new plan. I will no doubt write further blog posts on the topic.
In the meantime, in the interests of Non-Sequitur Thursday, I’ll just mention that I wrote more on the new novel while at work today. A new character magically appeared. I love it when that happens. Other characters are developing, plot points present themselves, I am enjoying it a great deal.
As the Boilermaker 15K continues to approach (yes, another non-sequitur), I knew I must run. Of course the weather did not cooperate, with snow falling all day. Then again, what do I care about the weather? I can and do run in crappy weather. However, today I elected to run in place on the mini-tramp.
While I ran, my husband Steven and I watched The Blue Dahlia, which we DVR’d from TCM back in February. Naturally we discussed what we were watching, but I mustn’t share too much, in case you’d like to watch the movie sometime. It is not one of the cheesy ones I delight in giving plot summaries of.
Incidentally, the Boilermaker is in July (I just wrote the headline and realized the reference might be obscure).
