Gotta work on one of my novels

I still need to decide for sure to work on my novels on certain days: like Monday nights and Friday afternoons and night.

The other day I was working through some ending scenes in my mind for my Storm Born novel-I might make that the Storm Born series but title the book something different like Self Blinded or He Can See Things or??- anyway I changed the ending I had in my mind. But the only problem is that I still haven't figured out how my MC survives three lighting strikes, almost as one. The way I made him that might be possible but I need to come up with something. He might get thrown across a large warehouse, with junk piled on top of him.

But the biggest problem is that I have just started chpt 2 and don't know how to get to the end.

And I still no sure if he should be an established PI or this is his first case-the one that gets him going. ANd I'm still not sure how he discovers the body the novel starts with.

Something different

  This has nothing to do with writing but I noticed in Parade magazine- -that fly casting is becoming a popular sport. The guy in the magazine was dressed like a NASCAR driver because of all the names he advertised.

 I need some good news for my writing. Last time I said that like this I got some little good news, but this time little won't do. I need some really good news. Maybe get to the level past the Honorable Mentions on the current WotF contest I've entered. But even with my improved writing I'm getting no where there. Of course the best news would be to place, at least in third. I may not be able to go to the awards dinner or the workshop they have for winners-we will have to see- but that would great fantastic news.

Or have a pro editor say something nice about one of my stories. I got one three years ago, and other writes get comments so I should be able to also if my writing was getting anywhere.

Or God could surprise me with something unique. Whatever the case I need some good news.


Again I feel close to the end of sending out stories. Time to see if I can find someplace I like better than

Looks like the two new readers or assistant editors at Fantasy and Science Fiction are as tough as JJA was. The new guy, can't think of his name right now-seems to be a bit faster then the gal. I think she has been around longer though. Or as sent me rejections before anyway.

Looks like I have only a couple of more stories to send them.

More rejections

Got three more, one says they enjoyed reading my story, yeah right.

Yeah, I know another form letter where they were trying to be nice but they really enjoy lousy writing?
