Writing in Public: Day 17, Month 01

Today was not a very productive day in terms of writing.  The day job (Henceforth referred to as “other work”) kept me a lot longer than usual.  Not much of an excuse, but when the time’s not there it’s not there.

As such, the focus today was solely on getting the revisions of “Harmonious Bedlam” started, and I made some decent progress.  Didn’t write everything I wanted, but there was quite a bit of research time involved with this tale.  It’s for the music theme at Crossed Genres, and my way of tying music in was to make it a fantasy setting where a group of magicians use music to emotionally compel and control the populace they rule.  Certain kinds of music have a profound emotional impact on me, and it is my hope that I’ll be able to convey that in prose rather than trying to get technical with the music being played.
