Cyndi is currently deep in her own manuscript, a wonderfully imaginative and gritty fantasy. I know it's wonderful because she's been sending me scenes as she finishes them and I'm rivited! I feel guilty not being able to return the favor by offering her insightful critiques. Her first draft is like my fifth! Yes, I'm envious. But in the best way. She inspires me to work harder, dig deeper, write tighter. It's a beautiful thing.
Later this month, we'll be getting together for our annual weekend retreat. Just the two of us. We brainstorm our writing projects and gab for hours about whatever's on our minds. We also nibble on yummy snacks and laugh a lot. For the past few years, we've only been able to see each other ONCE a year. I can't tell you how much I cherish our annual friend retreat! And it's only a few weeks off. Yes!
Meanwhile, it's nose-to-the-computer. This is my last day off. Tomorrow it's back to the day job and minimal writing time. I best kick butt while I can.
Question for the writers out there. Do you work best in long stretches or short bursts? Do you thrive on a CPs input as you go along? Or do you prefer to finish the project before getting input? OR... do you prefer no input at all? Okay. That was four questions. What can I say? I'm curious.
