For those unfamiliar with the term, “flat-chat” means I’m busy – “Late”, well, you all know that word, and “Not really here” means I have nothing really to post today.
No surprise, huh? Since the crash and burn this week, I’m back to page 1. I’m wrestling with opening dialogue. I refuse to panic because panicking doesn’t help any. Anyway, I have the scene, I just want the dialogue that grabs. It’s coming, I’ve got something, but time got away from me and I realize I’m late to post – so I shall postpone until tomorrow.
I’m sure that’s all right with you.
For what it’s worth, I still expect to complete this story – 300 pages of bits, plus 200-300 more (big books, remember?), on time – or at least close.
Now I’ll get back to work.
