I got them to a new planet. Go me. And I haven't gotten caught up telling myself back story yet, which is what killed me last time.

Congrats! Are you more interested in this story than you were on the last one? It's a little hard to believe it's been a year already.

Well, it helps that I picked something I thought of about two days before I started, that wasn't already stale in my head by the time I wrote the first sentence. It wasn't even originally going to be sf; I switched it to a future setting to avoid various contemporary issues that might have raised their heads. And the new character is an actual new character, not one I'm scratching my head at and going, "How can I make sure he doesn't sound like Anakin Skywalker anymore?"

So jealous!

(Congratulations!)

Backstory's good. I think my problem is that there are too many characters for whom I haven't figured it out yet.

Thanks!

My problem last year was that I was writing one story, then got sidetracked into an entirely different one, and trying to go back and forth, I ended up not particularly interested in either.

Heheh. What to do when avoiding actually writing, while forcing oneself to think about the schedule...

You go lady!! I'm still chugging along at the daily quota pace, although I'm just sitting down to write a big scene tonight, since tomorrow I may not have time between riding lessons and work.

But tonight - a violin duel! Yee-hah!

Good luck! Dueling violins are always good. :)

Gotta have music to go with a Space Opera! :D Wish I could stick a sound track in a story.

You're doing SF too! W00t!

Friend vulgarweed already made the obvious pun 'Sax and Violins', if I was evil, I'd pick that as the title of my story.
