Outline Hell

 Finished the first, very basic outline of My Big Fat Olympian Wedding From Hell and the Inner Critic is in rare form.  Oh ugh.  I knew the story of Persephone and Hades would be the romance-y of the four chick-myth stories in the current series, but it needs more--more action, more panache and, very probably, a lot more research to bring out what I want in the story.  
There are some good bits--scenes and conversations that may find their way almost unchanged into the first true draft--but not enough.  Not nearly enough.  Oh well, it's called an outline for a reason.  I haven't committed to anything, and I've got a week to poke it with a sharp stick before I head out to RavenCon next Wednesday.  My goal is to start writing on the book as soon as I get back from Richmond.  I'd like to complete the first draft before I leave for DragonCon.  Here's hoping I can make it.
Meanwhile, I've reposted my Fantasy & Enchantment blog on Adrienne Mayor on my MySpace page.  Now if I could only figure out how to tag my MySpace posts, I'd be a happy camper.
...Nah.  I'd still have to deal with that pesky Inner Critic.
