I used to play the guitar.
|Dandelion Wish Necklace on Guitar by hrobinson.|
Not well; it was more like fooling around with a guitar in my hands, but I enjoyed it. One of my characters in Upgrade, Sadie Freeman, plays a guitar. It’s kind of interesting writing a piece for her; music is so much a part of her that it’s really a subset of her DNA.
What do musicians feel about their craft?
Hell if I know, but I’ll give it a shot. I finished a piece of writing on Sadie today, the bit I started yesterday; it’s a nice introduction for her (…if I do say so myself), but I hope I haven’t overplayed (hah) the guitar elements.
We’ll see. That’s what robust feedback is for.
Anyway, word targets are doing well! Same kind of writing time today – about 45 minutes, maybe an hour, it’s hard to tell (I had a meeting prior, where there was jousting). Word goal: 500. Word achievement: 1,000.
See you tomorrow.
