Editing/revising/etc is going well at the moment. The majority of the stories I’m working on are in pretty good shape so I’m going to do some fresh writing.
I had an idea the other day while chatting with Merrilee and it’s been ticking over slowly. It was meant to be kind of… sarcastic and sexist. An outlet for venting a frustration that I know many mothers have with their significant others. It’s kind of turned out a little darker than that though.
We’ll wait and see. Verdict will be in once I’ve finished the first draft.
I’m certainly noticing that there aren’t many happy endings in my stories. Definitely none that are gained without losing something in the process, or suffering. But then I guess that’s like life – no pain no gain? I’d like to think that there are happy endings out there, ones that don’t come at such a price. It just doesn’t seem to be where my writing is at right now though.
Oh and I sent a story out into the world yesterday, nice to have something on submission again! I think at this rate stories will have gone out, come back and been sent out again before the baby comes!
