No, I’ve not forgotten the blog. Am at nearly 60K now. Characters shaping up nicely. Have some loose ends that need care but am honing in on those. Now definitely a story with ghost elements. I joined character think tank and plotting think tank, both e-mail lists where you submit info re characters or plot and people reply with ideas etc. Commenting for others helps me a lot. Have submitted material to Character. At this point, actually, I don’t have many concerns about my h/h. I think they work together quite well and, so far, CTT, confirms this. Will do PTT this coming week. My biggest fear is having good characters and a great plot but being unable to make the right scene choices. So, I have become utterly ruthless about deleting material. Anyway, overall, I feel good about the stuff that’s been there for a while and less certain about the stuff that hasn’t. However, I intend to continue with a laser focus on the romance and just get rid of everthing that doesn’t have to do with that.

Worked out additional scene and updated outline. Will still be working in notebook, since it’s not ready for drafting yet.
