Today I was determined to get a few things done, and did. Went for the standard walk first. Then paid a couple of bills.
Then settled down to take all the comments I had received from three other writers in our critiquing group, and integrate them into Pelajis. Useful, nothing large except for Susan’s major comment that it takes too long to get going, there’s nothing happening, where’s the adventure?
This is not the first time this has been said. Well, I’m sorry, but there are things happening. With every scene, the characters, and the reader, are learning about this unfamiliar world and how it works. And to me as the writer, this learning, this discovering the details of this new place and how to navigate within it, is interesting. Exciting, even. I like to think there is a class of readers, little nerds like me at age 10, for whom it will be exciting too. Or maybe every child’s mind has been so conditioned by the bright fireworks of saturday morning cartoons that those little nerds are all gone.
After that I was determined to write something for the writers group this Tuesday, and got that done before and after lunch.
Finally I scanned the cover of Software Tools in Pascal and started converting it for I am not sure what purpose. No covers were harmed in the making of this image.
