So today I was working my way through the outline for Cawdor and I was relieved to find that I am still excited for the project. With all the interruptions and emotional turmoil of the last few months I had not been able to devote much time or energy to this project. Then the short story — A Song Of Silence — came along diverted me again.
After all that I was afraid that my passion for Cawdor had ebbed; not so. Reading through the outline feeling the pulse of the story got me excited to get working on it. I hope to be turning out prose pages within a week or so. There is more spade work to be done. Mainly in area that were underdeveloped in the first version of my outline that I have a better understanding in how to develop.
I’m still hoping to bring this in for around 110,000 words.
