cayleighstickler: Black cat walking through the snow leaving a trail of paw prints (Default)
 
So, I'm striking out on my own. Since it's the beginning of day 3 [though I consider it to be still day 2 since I haven't gone to bed yet], I want to start getting through the meat and potatoes of this outline so I can start to write the story. My goal is still to finish the entire thing before the end of the month, which means I have to write between 35,000 and 40,000 words in a month. That's a lot of words.

Right now, I'm focusing on those suspects and their motives (and a little backstory too). It's starting to shape up nicely, and I've even given the sleuth a best friend, besides her husband, of course. He has a rich backstory that just keeps developing - plus, he's gay, which makes it that much better. Unfortunately, he's a suspect in this one, so we'll see what's in store for him. I'm really laying it on thick for this guy, and he'll have to dig himself out of a massive hole. I'm not going to lie - I'm excited to watch him try.

He's starting to really look like a good candidate for murder, and I really need to raise the stakes for the other people to make everything seem at least a little realistic.
