Interim Post – I admit fully that I’m having a hard time concentrating on the book today, what with all the election stuff and whatnot. But I just laid down about 500 of the most interesting words. I think the world just up and spoke to me.
Not sure where they came from, but there’s not doubt they’re going to lead somewhere. [grin]
I’m going to have to think about this a little … I’ll be back soonish, I’m sure.
Final Update – Officially I ended today at 1,688 words added, which is not as many as I intended. But I’m pretty happy with them–not because they’re great or not great, but because they knocked down what I think is the last major barrier between me and the root of the story. As a result, I now have what is at least my working title “Wakers.” (BIG relief there)
I know I’ve still got at leat two major plot points to work out, but that’s a different problem than understanding the story.
In the big picture I’m at 11,160 total words in these six days, which I think is pretty good, because if you’ve been following me you’ll know that I’ve been working hard not to just chuck words down, but have been dancing around the story itself trying to make sure I finish the month with a full story rather than “just” 50,000 words of stuff. If I’m right about the understanding I’ve gotten this past day or two, you should see my word count jump substantially in the next day or two.
So, we’ll see. [grin]
