The other stuff is, What the fuck? Governor of Illinois has just won the award hands down, no contesto, for douchbag of the year. Pretty impressive when you consider O.J. was on the list.
On to writing type stuff, which is what this blog is for now that Please Delete This Blog is up. That little collaborative effort will be where I blog about the stuff that chaps my hide, and the occasional flash fiction pieces I write to keep my sanity.
From now on Charlie Horse will be all about the progress I'm making on my novels. So here goes.
Okay, so the mega outline/synopsis thingie that I decided to do based on the 2nd draft of Seed(s) is done. I'm now going through Cathy's stellar edits and addressing things like spelling dessert correctly. Then I'll look at the following list, pulled off of a thread over at Absolute Write, on things to search and destroy. I'll warn you now, it's quite lengthy and I'm not sure I agree with all or even most of it, but it's definitely worth noting and props to the person who put it all together. I know I sure couldn't have pulled anything like this out of my but.
Here's the list:
a little bit
as * was *-ing
could be heard, seen, felt, etc.
exist, exists, existed
I (in a first person narrative)
occur, occurred, occurs
set out to
so (as a sequential word)
Holy crap, that's a lot of searching, evaluating, and possibly destroying. I'll let you all know how this works out.
