Poor Miss Blankenship

I’ve been watching entirely too much Mad Men lately. I wish they had more characters like Miss Blankenship. You may have deduced from the post title that something just happened to her, and you would be right. It was a fairly amusing scene, despite the loss of a character.

I worked out some words last night. I started this story hoping it could be a “right the first time” story, but I’m afraid I’ve made so many changes that I don’t really know what’s going on anymore. I referred to magic in the first chapter, and now it’s pure science. I took out the one reference I found, and I can search for the rest, but have I insinuated something I missed?

I suppose that’s why folks have beta readers. I love my writing group, by the way. Have I mentioned that? I love everyone who shows up because everyone has such different strengths and insight.

On to business: I managed more fiction than blog words yesterday, writing 424 in fiction and 357 on the blog. I’m grateful for the upward swing in count, my best fiction day all week. I’d like to improve more on it today, and hopefully I will have the time because at about 2 p.m. I have an appointment to get a nail removed from a tire. I’ll take the computer. The appointment could take 30 minutes or 120, or more. Think of all the writing I could do!
