M. B. Weston’s Writing Diary: 02/19/15

Last night’s writing session: AWESOME!

I wrote an entire chapter–over 1000 words, and I mapped out the rest of the urban fantasy pulp story! I plan to finish the rough draft by this weekend, and then the race is on to see if I can get a good final done for advance readers before the end of March. (Any volunteers?)

I’m also implementing a new idea… I have too many short stories in my head that need to get out. Some people read before they fall asleep. I’m going to start writing before I fall asleep. Just for fifteen minutes or until I fall asleep on the couch… I’m working on a short story about a woman who works for an eccentric old couple. As she works, she discovers that she hears strange noises, but only when the lights go out… And move and get destroyed, but only in the pitch black…. Yeah, chalk this one up to horror/suspense. I’m hoping I can go to sleep after writing it.

I’m hand writing this in a journal, just as an experiment….

How are your projects going?
