Not too much done these past few days. I accomplished my goals for the week early, and I think my brain took a break. I picked up a book I read some time ago and skimmed over it again, as I tend to do with writing books. “Handbook of Short Story Writing, Volume II”, and sure enough, some concepts hit home. Two specific stories were in mind when I read this, and I confirmed for myself that I need to add the extra scene to the start of Dragon’s Bard, and just how I needed to fix the opening to The Lonely Orchard.
Edit prep and planning for the novel has gone as far as it can without turning into procrastination: the Forgotten Star edit begins today.
