The Journal, Wednesday, 7/12

Hey Folks,

Sorry. Just not much to talk about today, and I almost forgot to even file this report. (grin) So kind of a placeholder post today.

Today, and Writing

I worked on the edit today off and on. No fiction writing, but several ideas popping into my mind through the day. That’s a good sign.

I think part of the problem is that I’ve been looking for ideas. A friend helped solve that problem earlier this afternoon when he tossed out a very vague, very general idea.

I have an idea that’s what I’m gonna go with for my novel for this month. I know it’ll make a novel, I know it’ll write fairly quickly (so I’ll get my novel in for July), and it might even lead to a series.

Back tomorrow. See you then.

In Dean’s “Novel Two: Day Four” there’s a segment titled “A Point on Rest” at http://www.deanwesleysmith.com/novel-two-day-four/. I recommend reading it.
