As Mondays go, this one was pretty smooth.
When I got home from work, I made a quick dinner and then took a nap for a couple of hours. I had some good intentions about going out to get snacks for homework night, which is Thursday, but I wound up getting out the watercolors and playing with an idea for my Greetings from Coldwater blog instead. I think it turned out pretty well — not perfect, but decent. The picture is here, along with today’s installation of the story. This is the eighth entry in the blog/novel/whatever it is. I’m really happy with the way it’s flowing thus far. I’m still not entirely sure where the story is going, but I’m having a ball working up the characters and setting.
Joey is becoming much more important than I’d anticipated. I’d originally envisioned him as a peripheral character, but he’s rapidly becoming Sierra’s raison d’etre … which is good, I guess. She was a self-centered little wench for years, so it’s about time she put somebody else’s interests ahead of her own.
I could say the same thing for myself, I suppose.
