What a great writing day. My word count didn’t go up a lot and in fact, I haven’t tallied it yet. I plan to hit the laptop again later.
No, what I did do was go back with my main character’s new and improved personality and rework some scenes. I was right. Fighting that urge was bad. Giving in to it was good.
And, as I thought, it opened up the rest of the story. I know of two scenes I’ll have to cut but I instinctively knew they weren’t working anyway. However, I have replacements in mind and I also know how to flesh out another that was just a bit off–one of those scenes that FELT like it could be more. Make sense?
I wish I could stay in this office and continue working on this while it burns so brightly in my mind. But, the youngest needs help studying and he could use a little extra “mom” time this afternoon. So could my daughter who has the cold that won’t leave this house. Plus, I need a break from the office. Have a noisy bird right outside the window–one that didn’t scare when I yanked up the heavy and loud wooden blinds in here…
