April 28, 2008: Narrowing in

Raoul's story is not as focused as it needs to be. Oddly, the male character's story is much more focused than the female's, which is unfortunate because the female is the point of view character (and no, I don't want to do it the other way around, or flip their story lines).

The female (Tess) is searching for meaning and purpose in her life. Which, while great, doesn't lend itself well to a "find the grail" or "heal an injury" kind of goal. But I'm still looking, and it's coming together.

I had a dentist appointment this afternoon so only scheduled 2 hours on Raoul. The rest of the afternoon, after the dentist (of course) was 45 minutes late, I spent doing various odds and ends. I'm always pleased with myself when I make a schedule I can actually stick to - I feel SO much more productive as a result!

Writing Project: Raoul's outline
Time Planned: 2 hours
Time Spent: 2 hours
Favourite Part: saying to myself, "You can't just write *this bunch of words* and have a summary sentence," and looking at it and thinking, "Hmm. Maybe you can!"

Exercise: 30 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes weights
One Fun Thing I Did Today: updated my Ravelry account (if you're a crafter, go to NOW and sign up, then friend SapphireNinja) to show the craft stuff I've finished recently.

Here's me in my newest sweater, crocheted from this pattern. I wasn't ready when Wes took the picture, but it's actually kind of a neat pose!
