End of June Update

First, I’m deep in Significant Revision #1 of WIP. My CP messaged me the other day with “Are you busy? We need to talk about your plot.” Uh oh. Turns out, it wasn’t as bad as I initially thought, and her advice was (as usual) excellent. Now that I’m implementing many of the changes she suggested, things are coming together nicely. Plot points are crisper, emotions are clearer, and details that needed expanding are getting their due. I’ve yet to tackle the ending (CP said, “I need more!), but I’ve put a lot of thought into it and I’m looking forward to delving in.

Second, here’s what I’ve been looking at out my back windows for pretty much the entire month of June:

Cool, dull, and gray. Right above that hill, under the threatening clouds, is Mount Rainier. While this weather is annoying and depressing, it has been quite conducive to writing, for which I am thankful. Had it not been for Boot Camp and this never-ending string of crappy weather, I’d probably still be about 20k into WIP instead of knee deep into revisions.   

Finally, my hubby, daughter and I took a ten-hour road trip to Mountain Home, Idaho last weekend to visit my brother and his new baby. Gabriel is about five weeks now, and (of course) adorable. Almost adorable enough for me to want another baby, but not quite. 🙂 Here are a few pictures from our trip:

Baby Gabriel and me!

Playing at the park! 🙂

This makes me smile!

At the rodeo... Claire wasn't impressed!
