Life has been full amid this fuzz. I won't say sorry for my spell of absence, but I do hope nobody was anxious that I was either very sick or had deserted you. I've not been suffering, it's not been a particularly grim time. I've just not been able to think about or write much (an or which implies I sometimes write a lot without thinking; perhaps so). But I've been reading lots, listening to music, watching daft films and I am feeling a bit brighter now. I have even made some progress with my book.
At some point, I had a conversation with my muse about my Wood For Trees Syndrome (or WTF Syndrome; an inaccurate acronym, but more accurate to my sentiments*). My muse, who has an annoyingly practical mind for one whose purpose is to inspire me, suggested that I should rewrite my plan properly so when I'm editing I actually know what the heck is going on. I tried doing this on computer various ways, but I kept getting in a muddle. So I thought I needed to print it off onto an A4 sheet. And naturally it is now using three sheets of A3, and not nearly finished yet.
Simple story really, linear narrative written in the first-person. It's really not very complicated; I could summarise the plot in a sentence if I wanted to. But it is hard work, when you're writing and editing the bloody thing, to keep track of all the things that happen. Each colour represents a thread of the plot. Some of these boxed sentences represent a slightly longer sentence, others represent a few thousand words.
I'm even considering adding some weather icons because I keep forgetting what the weather is doing (which is important in terms of trivial inconsistencies which can break the spell I've tried to cast). No, you can't read any of it, sorry; I printed it in 8 pt text so you have to get right close to make out a word of it.
I am still rather behind with blog-reading and life in general, but otherwise I am fine.
* I realise an acronym should be initials which can be pronounced as a word, but abbreviation doesn't alliterate with accurate. This is the sort of place my head is just now.
