Gosh, the day goes by so quickly when I have the intention of being productive.
Today is my last official day of Christmas holidays (laughable, really, isn’t it? Christmas was like a month ago. But I’m not complaining; I’d keep the Christmas spirit alive and well all year round if it would keep me out of college!) before I return to ITT on Monday, so I want to make the most of it. And not in the way of, like, sitting around and chilling out and binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, no. I want to make the most of it in a way that will fulfill me.
Today is the day that I bring Blue* out of hibernation.
It’s been a long time coming and I’ve been stuck on it for a while now, but (given all the distress that’s going on elsewhere right now – #InaugurationDay**) today feels like a good day to get things back on track. Hey, today’s always better than tomorrow anyway, right? Although not quite as good as yesterday, but still.
I have a ‘To Do’ list which is being tackled bit by bit, and the crowning glory of it is to do my protagonist’s character profile. And I think this is where I got stuck before. I know all the major plot points but I don’t know my protagonist well enough to know what he’d do between each of these events. I just haven’t been able to connect the dots.
My protagonist. Poor boy doesn’t even have a name yet.
Well, today my protagonist and I are going to get intimate. By tomorrow I want to know everything about him.
*A novel that I’ve been plotting for quite some time now, but have barely started writing. I found that I didn’t have any time for it once college recommenced, but -as stated in yesterday’s blog– that’s no excuse.
**Gawd. I never thought my thoughts and/or writing would include hashtags. What have I become?!
