Shot Down My Hero

So my typical hour-long commute ran to an hour and a half today. Even after I made sure to leave the house a bit earlier than usual, and all that jazz. Some weeks you just can’t win, and I’m thinking this is one of them. Or at least today is. I did get a chance to listen to a few episodes on Stuff You Missed in History Class, so it wasn’t a total loss. “Don’t Cross the Dragon Lady” was especially interesting with a woman pirate who also had quite a head for business, and ended up not getting killed at the end of it all. “The Mystery of Saint-Ex” was talking about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (author of “The Little Prince”), and it was just sad to see how this awesome pilot/author eventually bit the dust, not to mention the poor guy that caused it. (This is by the way where the title of this blog post comes from.)

I had the best of intentions sitting down to lunch today, and was planning on reviewing the work I wrote on my project, but found I forgot to synch my files over when last I made updates. *sigh* Oh well, I guess it’ll have to wait until this evening. In other news I’ve been trying to read over what I have so far for Secrets of Leekston and continue the outline for this piece in preparation for NaNoWriMo next month. Unfortunately that just hasn’t happened yet. I need to focus on where I want to ultimately take this story, piece by piece. Right now I’m at point A, but only know what I want at point G, and have no clue how to get there from here. Guess I just need to take my time and plan it out. This is such a complex plot that I don’t want to lose any pieces. I’m usually not a big outliner and only need it for the beginning of a story, so it’s hard for me to do something that I feel “wastes my writing time” instead.
