Safety first

I’m fine! Thank you for asking!
My wheels are rolling and my shadow is dancing.
Just kidding. I don’t wear wheels… not even high heels…
And I’ve cut off the hair bun…

It’s warm like h… today. Hot flashes have gotten quite another meaning for the time being. Like amid July. Like we had last year for several months. Thank goodness that summer didn’t repeat itself this year. This heatwave began yesterday, it is today, and will supposedly remain two or three days more. It’s nice! I like it, and I try to ignore the more or less constant sweating. Also really nice the summer didn’t turn into autumn already. It almost seemed like that for a while…

Have lately kept myself busy with working on The Solar Eclipse Part one – mainly from CampWriMo April 2019 – and Part two – from CampWriMo July 2019 – to make those two first drafts into one second draft. And that’s done now. Just a brief overhaul, really. Mostly I had to read the whole thing through, to see what I have written so far. And part two was better than I thought it would be! GOOD!!!
On the whole, though, I deleted some and added some. But just minor changes so far. There will be more. Trust me!

Now I have saved the Scrivener file with its safety-copy and the sync-files on iCloud. I have also manually made a copy/paste to a Pages file. I’m well into both belt and suspenders as you see, and then an extra belt… and have thoroughly dated the files as well.

I should probably search for my small and handy USB-stick… I bought a new one not that long ago…

So! Now it’s time for the next phase. I just created a new Scrivener project, added the Eclipse 1 & 2, and the story about the Mechanical Man between them. Andrew becomes a member of the adventures in Part two, so I need a bit about him, who he is, where he comes from, what his skills are and how he got them. I won’t use all of that story though. Just enough to present Andrew.

What’s about to happen now, is to move some scenes to other places, gather what is supposed to go together, and then I have to write more action scenes. AND! I still have the ending of the story unwritten.

Gotta get going…
