Moving On...

Today and tomorrow, I shall have much writing time.  My dear son is staying with my folks until Sunday morning--partly to spend time with my folks, and partly to spend time with one of his best buds, who happens to live across the street from them.

So the afternoon is mine.  Well, the evening is mine as well, but I'm spending that time out with a couple girlfriends.  Dinner and drinks--not all that exciting, but quite enjoyable and much needed by all of us.

I spent some of yesterday's revision time moving back and forth through what I'd revised in the last couple days.  I felt as if I'd lost the omni voice a bit, letting it slide too much into blandness, so I read some sections aloud to play with tone.  The shift in narrator requires changes in word choice and sentence structure now and then, and it's when I gloss over those details that the voices falls out.

My list of Things to Find at the end of this revision pass has also grown.  These are words or phrases I know are my bugaboos, and names I've changed but don't always remember to change.  In this case, there are also titles I decided to change only two chapters ago, and a couple tweaks of worldbuilding business that will ripple into other places.

For my California friends:  I have a free night in LA on Sunday, March 4.  I won't have transportation, alas, and will be staying very near LAX.  But if anyone would like to join me and my son for dinner, I'd love to have you!

Hmm. If I could swing a Saturday overnight on the return trip--it would be March 10--might that work out?

That is a Saturday--that may work indeed. (I say may because the spousal b-day is the 14th, and there are Issues with the m-i-l; celebrations all have to fit her schedule, and she tends to prefer Saturdays. But I will know more when we get closer.)

Sounds good! I don't have to finalize that weekend's flight out for another month, so we have time.

I'd love to see you and I can provide transportation, too!

Have fun with your free time out this weekend.
