Slow Progress

DebE —  June 1, 2011 — Leave a comment

I mentioned this morning that self-promotion was a killer to creative flow. I haven’t got all that far today. Either been trying to drive traffic to vote for me, or doing what a mother should do: playing with my son.

So, the official word count for today is: 467.

A lot of that was reintroduced from the stuff I deleted yesterday (I rarely actually delete anything). I left out the bits that didn’t work, and finally, when out walking, came up with some dialogue that I liked. Only problem then was that when I got home I got busy and by the time I got to my computer, I had forgotten the finer details of the dialogue. I remember the gist of it. And I remembered a couple of sentences pretty well. I’ve written or noted these down. Hopefully as I drift off tonight I will start hearing voices… in a good way. I have my cell phone to take notes in that instance. Planning for a return to productivity tomorrow!




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
