Waning Moon
Saturn Retrograde
Venus Retrograde
Cloudy and cold

It’s in the thirties here. So much for spring!

I got a good bit of work done, but not what I planned. I read over an adaptation I started last year. The bones of the story are good, but I have to map out more of it and finish the outline. The characters’ relationships weave an interesting web that’s integral to the story, and I have to make sure that I keep everything clear for me so that I know what to reveal when to the reader. It’s more hard sci-fi than I usually write, although there’s a good bit of mythology mixed in. It’ll be four to six months before I can actually go back and work on it again, but I think there’s enough there to warrant more attention. It’s a good stretch for me.

I also re-read what I have on MODERN CREATION MYTHS. Again, good bones, needs work. It’ll be awhile before I get back to it.

I was limited in what I could do at the computer because, in addition to the computer running poorly, for some reason, I had horrible pains in my hip and sacro-iliac. Bad enough so I had to take something for it (which is unusual). I could only sit for a few minutes at a time. That’s really going to make this week difficult if I can’t fix it fast.

I managed to get through some research (something I could do while lying on the floor, which seems to be the only position that didn’t cause excruciating pain, in spite of the pain pills and the yoga).

I wrote nearly 1K done on one of the anthology stories this morning (considering it’s due at the end of the week), and I will try to work in short bursts throughout the day. I hope to get some work done on the other story and maybe a little bit on CRAVE THE HUNT. If the weather holds, I’ll take a good long walk to loosen that hip.

  1. Hopefully your hip pain will be one of those freak things that goes away quickly!

    Should write good post! Looking forward to seeing the next one!

  3. Science FIction and Mythology? That sounds like an interesting mix. Can’t wait to hear more about that later this year. Sorry to hear your hip/back is bothering you. I hope it loosens up soon. Hugs!

  4. Oh boy, hip and sacroiliac pain are no picnic when you have to sit at the computer and write. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

    Thanks very much for stopping by my blog to offer your congrats for my wedding anniversary, Devon. I really appreciate it! 😀

  5. Hope you feel better soon. Is there nothing alternative you can take?

  6. Oh dear, have you slept in a funny position? Hope it goes soon.

    When you say in the 30s, do you mean farenheit or centigrade? Not sure if it’s hot or cold for spring. 🙂 (I remembered to forget the nose.)

  7. Hope you’re feeling better..

    It snowed here at the beach on the first day of spring. Urgh.
