Chapter Four…finally

June 13, 2012

I finally finished chapter four and sent it off to the beta-readers. That gave me a brief sense of relief, but of course, chapter five is already underway.

Apparently having to wait at the tire repair place is good for me, or at least good for my characters, because I got the better part of a scene written there. Today was “Wild Wednesday”, so Mom and I were hiking at Shades State Park and Pine Hills Nature Preserve. But I’m determined to get another scene written tonight before I sleep.

Last week I gave myself some gruesome first-hand experience to write from. I backed into the lawnmower muffler while doing yard work. I don’t recommend this method to people, but now I know what a second-degree burn feels like and how it heals (or at least starts to heal, and then possibily gets infected…) I now understand why my main character, who was subjected to hot irons in the torture chamber, hates me so very, very much.

Tomorrow I’m having lunch with a friend, and then, if the burn isn’t healing well enough, I’ll be making a stop at urgent care, I’m afraid. Cross your fingers that the antibiotic ointment keeps doing its work!
