I have mostly finished the revised version of the first outline, and made notes onto the second. Brainstorming with the roommate yesterday helped in some ways – it helped to have that second set of “eyes” as it were.
I’ve got a few loose ends to tie up (and finish elaborating on the ending) but right now it’s a clunky two pages. My goal is to get the two outlines, combined, down to a little over 3 pages, if not 2-3 pages max.
My main concern, at this point, is that I’m going to end up putting too much thought into the matter, and end up overthinking it. The work schedule this week is lighter than I remember (someone out there is looking out for me), so I’ll definitely have the time to get through it. Hopefully I can finish off the second outline today, then bang out a rough outline for book 3 tomorrow, just in time to take both copies to work and rip them to shreds.
In other news, who knew the Sex and the City movie would be a huge draw for Ruby Tuesday? Last night, no lie, the bartenders must have made….somewhere between 30-50 cosmo’s. To understand that, keep in mind that my restaurant is not a big “bar” place – we get bar business, but not nearly what someplace like Fridays or Applebees draws in. Last night was crazy – groups of women who were going out to see the movie and drink some cosmos beforehand.
