But I'm not going to give in and go back into hibernation mode. I am going to push through and keep working, because I live in the Midwest, and if I let every weather fluctuation stop me from working, I would literally get nothing done.
So last night I worked on fleshing the characters in my paranormal story out. I don't do a full-blown summary or plot map or anything when I am writing, I'm more of a pantser, but I do keep a writer's bible, so now I have down hair color, height, age, salient background details, etc. on the main players in my new WIP. They are in no way complete bios, and are subject to change at a moment's notice, but it is a start.
And I did it in the cold, so I see it as a real accomplishment.
