So I don't have anything new to post, but I am still working away. I've reached the part in TE that I knew was going to be difficult. I need to start explaining certain aspects of Mages/Rajala in general, and it can be hard to do without becoming overwhelming for the reader. This is also where the largest rewrite of the actual plot takes place.

I actually sat down yesterday and wrote, gasp, an outline. I don't generally do that, as I tend to piece everything together when the time comes, but it needed to be done. Things are going along about where I had them figured, so that was good. I've been working through the next 5-6 chapters, just a rough draft, as there are some parts that I am unsure which POV I'm going to put them in. Once I've got the main chunk of them written I'll go back and edit chapter ten so that it will be ready for posting.

On another completely unrelated note, Jason has found another job. He's now doing security and spa work, and working his butt off. I feel so bad, especially when I'm still struggling to find anything. *sigh* All I can do is what I can do, and I just keep plugging along. I always wanted to stay home and write, but this isn't exactly how I had it figured.

Wow, an outline! If you're like me, you might not even know what an outline is... ;D

Hey, I haven't even nearly caught up with your posted chapters yet, so I've got plenty to keep me entertained. I can definitely wait for chapter 10!

Huge congrats for Jason, as tired as he must be (heaven knows I feel for anyone who's overworked!) and huge hugs for you - keep your fingers crossed and your chin up, do your best, and take advantage of what you DO have. You'll get through it - here in Australia they're already talking about the downturn ending. (On the other side, we've been massively hit by swine flu in my home state, so there's always something...) Hopefully things will start looking up globally as well!

*crosses fingers for job prospects*

Making an outline is almost scary, lol. It was time, though.

Things are looking up for us, slowly but surely.

I'm so glad things are looking up! *hugs*

And yes, I don't know what's scarier than an outline ... writing one for my honours thesis was torture. Harder than the body of the thesis itself...
