* I'm never going to finish WHITE SPIRIT. It's going to keep going and going and going...

* Sometimes I look at people and think, "It must be exhausting trying to be cynical and cool all the time."

* Jotted ideas down for the merman book the other day. I'm pleased with many of them.

* I have no idea why the library is full of people today. We don't have any programs going on. It's a beautiful day outside; why are you all here?

* Almost finished with Sweet Legacy by Tera Lynn Childs, and then I can start Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I've heard good things.

* One kid is watching Zack and Cody on one of the computers. I find myself watching with him from my seat on the desk, even though I can't hear it.

* I wish this child behind me would stop screaming.

* Ooh, the Emmys come on tonight. I'll be in my pajamas, stuffing my face with potato chips while I watch. I'm a sucker for awards shows.

How is your Sunday going?

It's another week; let's see how those goals are going.

1) Get halfway through the edits on WHITE SPIRIT.

Since adding those two scenes in, my plot moved a bit smoother. I don't know whether they gave my characters more of an emotional foundation or what. But chapter five is chugging right along. This is the chapter where I've killed off one of my MC's best friends. Now I need to pour the emotion into it. In the previous drafts, it was sparse and I can see why my betas told me to punch it up.

Also, I've set a deadline for these edits - August 17. Writing it down made it seem more real so I think I need to do more of that.

2) Work on it every day.

I missed last Wednesday and Friday, but I've worked on it all the other days. Gotta keep this up.

Now, if only they would fix the air conditioner here at work.

Okay, so, to get myself writing today, I may have committed an act of fanfiction. It wasn't big. A simple Man of Steel drabble. But it did get me into work mode, and sometimes you need that, right?

What gets you into work mode?

Anyway, let's look at our July Write Motivation goals, shall we?

1) Get halfway through the edits on WHITE SPIRIT.

I don't think I'm revising right. I'm on the third draft, and I'm adding in new scenes. To be fair, I did cut a couple that were dead weight. But I've noticed I needed to fix the flow. Granted, I'm not adding as many as I did during the last draft, but I'm still adding. I like to think of it as fleshing out the characters, you know?

Meanwhile, I'm getting a better understanding of Tristan and McKenna and how their powers and relationship works. I'm very pleased.

2) Work on it every day.

In my defense, there was a holiday last week. I'm back on track as of today, though. Onward and upward.
