Frustration

You ever have that feeling that you're on the verge of something great but it's not...quite....there yet? I feel that way about project 3. The potential is there, if I can just...figure out what it is that I'm missing. I think the plot is good. I think the characters are good. The premise is great. But there's something in the tone I just haven't captured yet.

The closest explanation I can come up with is: I am aiming for a steampunk-ish world. I have the steam, I'm seriously lacking in punk. And I'm not even sure if that's an accurate complaint.

I am seriously considering going back to do a major revise on the first chapters I already have done before I can move on. I swore I wouldn't do it, but it may become necessary.

Cookies, for inspiration!

Cookies inspire me at least...well, inspire me to walk. *grump*

They inspire you to walk? They inspire me to curl up on the couch with a tall frosty glass of milk and do absolutely nothing.

That's because you don't have my fat ass!
