National Novel Writing Month is just over sixteen hours old now and considering the amount of typing I’ve done, writing this blog post is a tad cathartic. One I changed font and it serves as a refreshing break. Weird, I know.
So I was basically listing scenes right up until the start and my plan isn’t quite done yet. I have 48 scenes. It looked like it was close the final climax and being wrapped up by scene 50 but I added a twist and it’s able to go on a bit longer. That’s not just filler, I swear. It would’ve disappointed people to end at that point.
I started right on midnight dosed up with too much caffeine. I started blaring Drowning Pool and Carpathian through my massive Sony Headphones and had like 1800 words by 1am. I woke at like 12 this morning to continue work and after two bursts of 15 and 20 minutes, I’m up to 3085 words and still working on this first scene.
It’s good, I like it a lot. It’s full of anger and aggression and really shows one of my characters really well. The heavy angry metal music has been working well to get this out of me.
I plan to keep writing to 4,000 words today as I’m using the rush and momentum of everyone starting to get ahead and make me feel confident. So far, it’s working.
