Getting Back into a Routine

It's the second week of school and things are getting back to normal. I've been writing everyday and the story is progressing nicely. Still have no idea about the ending. But that's the way I like it. I' write by the seat of my pants. No plotting, no research, no detailed character sketches. I tend to write everything as I go, learning about my characters in the process. It leaves quite a bit more work in revisions, but if I do all the details first it slows the story down. Sometimes to a dead stop.

Today was also my first day with a new critique group. I'm excited to get other opinions, and improve in my craft. With this one and the great ladies I met during fast draft I'm really being held accountable. And its GREAT!
