If you ask me to I will

Good writing session last night, I finished off the scene I was writing for the meeting from the day before. I’m having some trouble deciding what I should tackle next. I’ve got seventeen scenes left on my to do list, but none of them are screaming to be written. Maybe that means I should cull them out, I’m not sure. In addition I have five general points that I wanted to add more development on that are related to some of the to be done scenes, so I guess I should choose those.

On a totally unrelated note, it’s interesting how something that your character might say occurs to you as you write a scene and all you can think to yourself is “Wow, I can’t believe he’d say that.” I had this happen to me over the weekend. There’s one line in particular that one of my main characters says that I was just shocked by. As soon as it was on the page I knew it was right, but it was still shocking to me. I guess that’s part of what happens when your characters actually come alive for you. I haven’t had a similar experience yet with my other main character and I wonder if I will. For some reason I feel like I understand my male main character better than I do my female main character. His motivations are more in line with my own I suppose.

We got the final results from our home inspection today. Everything is good, we’re just waiting for the realtors/lawyers to come back with our closing date and we’ll be on our way. I’m very excited. I’m ready to move today!
