This past week and a half has been kind of crazy. Finished the family tree for my main characters and this has proven to be quite interesting. As the names begin to take on the characteristics of the person being portrayed the players are beginning to flesh out. They have begun hinting at their individual stories and a few have even suggested a scandal or two along the way. (We’ll see about those.)
In a departure from my other books I will be creating main sections for my story to parallel the lives of my main characters – Youth, Middle Age, Golden Years, etc. Of course the actual names of the sections may change but those are what I’m working with right now.
The dance hall narrator has begun speaking to me and I’ve jotted down some pertinent facts that will help to guide my story. In all a productive period even though I didn’t get to devote as many hours to writing as I would have liked.
Almost finishing up with the polish work of Oak Cliff; received another rejection from a publisher in the UK. Really had high hopes for them but guess they aren’t as open minded as I had assumed they would be.
So there we are – with only a half week until my next update – guess I’d better get to work.
Have a sparkling week!
