Another Year, Same Hurdle


Except this time I'm jumping over it.

I have to say, this year is starting off great. On the first of January, I rewrote my query letter from scratch and actually liked it. It's short and sweet. After I show it to a few writer friends, I'll find out if it's interesting and as clear as I think it is.

As for my manuscript, the scenes I've written so far are few, but they've each contributed to either a plot arc, character trait, or moral in the story. Needless to say, these are scenes that I'm keeping.

I also received an unexpected spark of motivation. My dear friend (I still have to get used to saying "boyfriend") bought me a ticket to go to Disneyland with him. We went on the third, and it was a lovely day. No extreme heat. Carefully planned layers so we weren't the least bit cold. Honestly, I thought spending twenty-one hours with one person would make me restless, but no. That man is a real treat to be around. Very attentive and focused, then hyper and fidgety. He shifts. Isn't that interesting?

I'll post some pictures of the scenery I shot that day. I'll probably do it tomorrow, knowing how indecisive I am with which ones to share. I'd show you all of them but there are seventy-five new pictures in my camera roll. Wait, five videos and seventy pictures? Yes. Either way, that's a lot of pictures.

You know what? I've got time. I'll post them now.

For today's progress, I wrote a scene, brushed up my bio and uploaded some photos starting the new year. You know how it is with social media. If your cover photo's the same for too long, life begins to feel a little dull. I like my pictures changing at a reasonable pace. If the pictures are moving, then I'm moving, and 2018 really shouldn't feel like 2017. No please and thank you.

I'll talk to you later, reader. Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
Louisa
