Writing in Public: Day 08, Month 02

Weekends are always strange.  There seems to be a lot more free time to write and yet often less gets done.  There are errands to run and chores to do and other things to take care of that just don’t get done in the week.  Before you know it, it’s night time and you’ve only finished one of two daily projects you wanted to tackle.

The rough draft for “Pearl Diving” has been finished at roughly 2,850 words, and the outline for “Putting a New Face on an Old Place” has been accomplished, although I think I’ll want to revisit that tomorrow before I get started on the rough draft of that.  There are some soft parts of the plot that need firming up before I want to sit down and spend time on a rough draft.  I don’t think the story will be all that long, either.  Likely it’ll be right at 2,000 words or so, which is shorter than I originally anticipated.
