on the writing & reading trail

Edit diary (April 8-9)

Today:  It was discouraging to find that the first chapter new writing of several weeks ago, that seemed problematic then, is no nearer solution now. Something does not fit. A different approach is hovering in consciousness but not forthcoming. The structural change generated more grind than I anticipated.

However, it wasn’t all bad. The rejigging of the two-scene flashback content feels right, and that took a lot of rewriting at the time, so why am I surprised that the new words need a lot of reworking too? Maybe the troublesome action needs a new chapter. Will sleep on that idea and see how it falls out tomorrow.

Yesterday: During a walk in the park with my husband, the off-and-on sprinkle of rain wafted without wetting. Great to see so many people enjoying the local facilities. Barbeque smells at the entrance.  So peaceful away from the happy calls in the play areas; birdsong, ducklings, purple water lilies, boys fishing, cyclists, flitting yellow butterflies, yellow gorse, intense blue sky flanked by heavy grey and white fluff cloud.
