WIP Wednesday: Fred

The plotting of something old and rather nasty is done. I have lots of colour coded character index cards filled out and I've scrabbled the evil doings of scary monsters on them.

However, the dear old thing needs a new title. The other one feels all blah now and soooo yesterday. But, we're struggling. I have a list of a gazillion titles - some hideous, some okay, some not too bad - alas, I am searching for brilliance. Thus, in the meantime, I shall be referring to said book as FRED.

Fred's Word Count: 92 words (Hey Fred, off the hammock now you lazy...)

Wake up, Fred! I've got a brontosaurus burger for ya. Oh how I wish I could plot like you. I'm around 7,000 words into writing my second novel and I haven't plotted a single thing. It's scary. :-D

Ha! This is draft 706 and the original draft wasn't plotted either. I had a beginning, an end and a sort of middle. Oh, and you sold your first novel, I didn't. :D And we don't talk about the others :(

well now, you haven't accidentally locked Fred out with the dog again now have you?

Natalie L. Sin said...

Fred looks like he's been into the beer!

Hey, at least Fred makes it look good, right?

Aaron Polson said...

Don't tell the Fred in my head what your Fred is doing.

(man...that sentence made me dizzy)

Andrea Allison said...

Poor Fred. Always sleeping on the job. Then he wonders why he always gets locked out at night.

Cate Gardner said...

Barry, the dog's currently munching on leftover words.

Natalie, among other things.

Katey, I so want a turn in that hammock.

Aaron, me too.

Andrea, he's a naughty boy.

At least it isn't Barney, he was frequently unemployed and always asking for money.

Cate Gardner said...

I'll remember that when naming my next book.
