Story Breakthrough

I finally remembered what happened this weekend (sick child and stress and exhaustion) and the bad news is I feel it sneaking up on me now.

Onto the writing: I hit a breakthrough on the story I'm writing on for the parsec contest. I wrote the ending first and now I'm on the beginning which is weird for me but a change in routine is good for the brain. It confuses the muse, but she gets into the swing of it. I think it amuses her. The title is Watering the Black Violas, and it wound its way into science fiction. The original ending I wrote is already obsolete, but that's all right. It helped me find my path for this story which I can't wait to share.

Thanks for stopping by! Good luck finding your story with your back-and-forth method. That's got to be easier than what I'm doing--discovering the heart of a full novel on version seven!

Hugs. My daughter was sick with something pretty nasty and I've been fighting something like a cold and sore throat for like a week or two.

Good luck with the parsec story. If you need a critique give a holler.

Valerie -- version 7? I was heartbroken going into version 4 of a novel edit knowing how badly I needed to change so many things. My heart goes out to you.

Maripat -- thanks for the offer, I might take you up on it at some point. :)
