I am glad to report I’m making some progress on “The Book”! It’s only the slightest bit of progress, but progress nonetheless. Slowly but surely the first in my “Strange Little Girls” series is starting to take shape. Currently only the first verse is actually finished, but words and lines and other parts are slipping in bit by bit. And it’s about time! I started that first verse a month and a half ago! Feels nice to actually see things move along. Now to get that moving past the current snail’s pace. ^_^
I am considering changing the title of the series, though. I think it’s a nice title (as well as a Tori Amos reference, which is never bad), but I’m not certain if it really, fits. I don’t know. Doesn’t matter that much. It’s not like it’s high up on my to-do list. Just something that’s been hanging in the back of my head for a bit. Might stay, might go. We’ll see.
I’ve also been planting seeds for a new story idea in my head, which, if it gets done, I plan on making part of the book. In (very) short, it’s going to be about a group of people seeking to escape from under the yoke of a cruel tyrant. It might not the most original idea at first sight, but then again, it’s only a very general premise and the story’s only in its very early infancy. It’s loosely based on actual events and has a bit of a personal side to it, so I do think I’ll be able to make this my own.
And that’s it for the day. Not quite the meat I had hoped for yesterday, but hey, what are you gonna do? I just enjoyed making the teensiest bit of progress on something other than my thesis and felt like sharing it. Plus, y’know, this way you can also be witness to this ever growing little piece of history in the making. If that isn’t something to tell your grandchildren, I don’t know what is! ^_~
