Sunny and cool

Yesterday was spent on student work quite a bit, and running around doing more errands than I realized I had! So many errands we had to stop at Cook’s for lunch, rather than faint from hunger! 😉

As I worked on the outline for the Harpy book, and posted my first third (per the Year-Long), I realized that something that was supposed to be a B plotline threatened to take over the book. I’m going to have to simplify it – can’t be cut, because it’s part of what brings the antagonist down, but I can modify it so it doesn’t take over the book. Gotta love process.

We start writing in three days, which is pretty damned exciting!

Had a meeting for a local gardening organization last night and they voted me in as Secretary! Nothing like jumping in, right? I’m good at note-taking and brainstorming and communications, so it should all be good.

Came home, watched some acquaintances’ latest TV episode, got some other work done.

I’ve got a lot to do with the students today, some freelance work for a client, and a trip to Wareham to get a bunch done, and then start tackling the storage room.

I found a new blooming bush in the backyard — I think it’s a hibiscus. Who knew?

I’ve got photos to upload into the computer for various and sundry, so I need to do that, too, and get things moving!

  1. Thinking about the B plot overtaking the process makes me think of William Faulkner and Toni Morrison (who is a Faulkner scholar). Both take advantage of the B plot and give it the space it needs to work itself out. I’m just about through Light In August (Faulkner) in which he starts with the main story, but it morphs into a rich B plot that’s become the main story, and I love it. Morrison does this in Song of Solomon, too. They both make me want to be a better writer because of it.

    Hibiscus are lovely! The neighbor has a row of them planted along the property line. What a nice fence!
