The reading of synopsis pointers didn’t go as planned yesterday. Between chores, phone calls and the twins, I just didn’t have enough time on my hands. Oh, well. There’s always today. Although the kids aren’t in daycare, so it’ll be more challenging.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a stay-at-home mom, but I send the twins to daycare for two hours twice a week. This is supposed to be my writing time and usually it works out that way. However, I’m playing catch up with things around the house after enjoying some wonderful family time over the holidays.
Anyway, I’ll get to the synopsis reading later. I have an additional distraction too—another book outline. It’s just the beginning of an idea, but one I don’t want to ignore. I’ve already recorded some character information into my digital voice recorder as I was riding a recumbent bike at the gym last night. It’s a start, but as most writers know, it never ends there. For the next little while, until I get some form of an outline drawn up, I’ll appear distant to everyone around me. In reality, my mind is constantly playing through different scenes until the outline is complete. It drives my husband nuts, but he understands it’s part of who I am.
