Devin’s November Flash Fiction prompt is up. This month is a dark angel theme. Love the photo she’s found to get us inspired even though nothing’s really hitting me at the moment. For those who didn’t notice, I posted my October Flash Fiction entry on the Freebies page.
I’m totally buried in polishing BD&L. I’ve been hacking at it like a crazy woman cutting through the jungle with a huge machete. But it feels good because I’m making it better. My reader is also busy shredding it for me and has already pointed out a few things I missed.
After numerous re-writes of my query (though not as many as I thought it would take) my Query Coach <waves at JL> thinks I may actually be very close to having a winner. Who knew that writing something not even 150 words long could be more painful and brain wracking than writing 80,000 words?
Rhetorical question. Anyone who’s ever done it knew that.
I also figured out why I’m stuck on the un-named urban fantasy. Unfortunately that means backing way up and trashing about three chapters. Big plot problem. I gave something away too soon and stuck one of my MCs in a situation he had no way out of. No wonder I couldn’t move on! I had nowhere to move to.
