Writing update: Chapter 1

Writing update:

I worked on Chapter 1 yesterday. I had done it before so it was mostly correctly grammar, removing passive voice, that kind of thing.

Tonight I'm working on chapter 2. I need to reinvent the world building or at least a good amount of it, so this will take longer. I want to catch the absurdity of this environment without draining the seriousness the characters are in.

Let's see if the brain works.

Back to the writing board

 A professional writer I admire and respect has returned to writing; she shared her progress on her new book and I'm so excited to read it.

But it also reminded me how i promised myself and my friend Martha's memory that I would finish my very first draft of my book. So inspired by Susan, I'll post my progress here. Sort of an accountability and way to stay excited.

I will start those posts with "Writing update:" so you can skip them if you're not interested.

who's that in the mirror?

I was feeling good, that I was a good deal skimmer etc. Then I saw myself in the mirror and raised in the old, fat woman in it. 😔
