Song mood: Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve.
I wrote one hundred plus words on my Inspector Trevor novella last night. I know I should have kept up the moment tonight. At any rate, I started it. I started out with the scene, I thought was going to be the beginning scene. The one where he is being vetted by MI5 to investigate the murder. The first scene of the novel will be the murder scene.
I just wrote in the part where Phoebe, his future wife is at a pub in London with her mother and they are walking out into the rain to do some more shopping. Phoebe has nothing really to do with book, but I like to have these little scenes where in the next book she shows up and people say, I know her from somewhere.
This next week, I plan to finish out this scene and then the murder scene. Then I’ll probably write the scene where Trevor explains it all. In this novella, there will be two or three action scenes. The murder scene and the chase scene. I will probably write out those scenes as well before moving on to the investigation and interview scenes.
I’m mostly all set for the Winnipeg trip. I’ll still need to pack. I looked into where the hotel is at and it’s in downtown Winnipeg. Which is awesome, because I can then park my car and not drive any more while I’m there. I can walk or take public transportation to anywhere I would want to go. There is a neat craft beer bar and restaurant nearby.
So, I think it will be fun. I may be alone on my birthday and I’m okay with that. Granted, I would love female companionship, but with someone who is wholesome as heck.
What I do want out of this trip is to rekindle my passion for writing. I want to experience the city. I want to try new and different restaurants. I want to get that drive and focus I once had for writing and fuel myself with the passion to finish a project. I want to have a new hold on my creativity.
On the way up there, I’ll hang out with my mum. Then on the way back, I’ll hang out with my mum and uncles.
Then a day or two of rest. And then Free Comic Book Day. I may dress up, but then it may be super hot and then it’ll be a Captain Marvel teeshirt kind of day.
