O' fingernails, how I miss thee. Beautiful talons that perfectly matched my long fingers, but got in the way of touch-typing! With a clip-click-clip, you disappeared this morning. Two weeks of growing and you were beautiful...now you are gone gone gone, until I finish with Book Two and some probable edits/revisions/expansions on Book One. (*sigh*)
On a writing note, I wish I'd heard the tip about reading a book out loud to make revisions! I think it's a really good one! Not sure how my family will feel about that, because I get grief enough from them when I have to practice a song for choir, audition, or performance! I can't imagine what they'll think about hearing 150 pages read out loud! (At least it won't be as repetitive as practicing a song!)
Anyway, on with Book Two. I've figured out my opening and how to get into obstacle #1. The first chapters should go pretty quickly as the pictures form in my head. It's funny how I have to see it before I can write it, because it's just the opposite for my business writing. In business writing, I write, rearrange, revise...but it's first on paper (no pretty pictures in my head)!
If you've read this far, I have a challenge for you! Type with your opposite thumb (or a different finger) on the space-bar. See how your thoughts come out differently when you have to slow down and really THINK about what you're typing! It's pretty cool.
