The oncoming train

It's no secret that I've had trouble getting my young adult WIP to really gel - but I think I might've finally hammered out the kinks on this thing. I haven't been terribly productive from an overall writing standpoint lately, no,* but I've had my trusty legal pad at the ready - jotting notes, fiddling with the structure, noodling with the details ... and now I've got what almost looks like a proper outline/plan of action/arc and resolution.

In other words: holy shit, I think I fixed it. I'll find out in earnest next week, as this weekend will be eaten up with continued renovations and/or visits from out-of-town family members. So come Monday, I'll start posting word metrics again, and see if this thing can really come together like I want.

Jesus, at this point it pretty much has to.

Anyway, have a good weekend, everyone. I'll catch you on the flip-side, and let you know how it goes.

* Besides the ongoing remodeling, there's also been a lot of Writer Business to tie me up for the last few days - contracts and emails and conference negotiations and managing SNAFUs and mailing ARCs and paying bills and tackling taxes and so forth and so on. It happens.

Kind of feels good when you surprise yourself, doesn't it?

We'll see.
I'm not out of the woods on this one yet.
