AFDOC 12

Week 12 - three months into the revision. I truly thought I would be further along. I've totally blown my planned schedule. If I was my boss, I'd probably fire me - oh, wait. I am my boss, and I need to give myself a good talking to. I have Spring Fever in a big way. Spring has sprung and there's so much to do outside before the blistering heat knocks us for our annual loop. One week it's twenty-four degrees and the next it's sixty-four and the next it's ninty-four. We have such a narrow window to get outside and enjoy. Okay, that's my list of excuses for this week. How'd I do?

AFDOC got a nip and a tuck here and there, but not what I'd call substantial, so I'm working on a new schedule to accomodate my planting and painting outside. I'm ready to get this show on the road! How can I be so excited about something and not work on it everyday? I've never had writers' block in the traditional sense. I have git er done block.

Today I'm sharing a picture from my NOVEL WALL to show you what a real story board looks like. You can't see it all because it wraps around the room, but before I take it down and start over, I wanted to share with you what works for me {don't take that too literally this week.} I can see AFDOC as it unfolds on the wall and move the stickie notes all around, and that really helps reveal the book as a whole. New paper will go up in the next few weeks, so I can post the new chapter names new chapter scenes, and see how they look as a whole with weeks of revision in place.

May you have a Blessed Holy Week. Mahala
