Forecast: Bloggy

Yeah, that's the sum total of my wittiness today. No updates on the submission front.

Hit my word count goal, and I'm about 2/3s of the way through chapter 5 of Project 3. One of my characters has turned out to have more backbone than I gave him credit for, and it may make the climax of this book play out way differently than I first thought. Time will tell.

But that little fact got me to pondering how much fun it is to have characters that are only half-formed in your mind, and letting THEM tell YOU who/why/what they are. So far, I have one character who is shaping up to have a much bigger role than anticipated, and then of course my new-found man-with-spine. It's fun!

(I'm safe as long as I don't let them run off with my story. You never really domesticate them, you know, and they could bolt at any moment.)

That's what tazer's are for, right?

Sounds like things are forming nicely. Can't wait to see how this story turns out.
