Usually I find the 40k-50k stretch of words easy peasy. Not so much this time. I still force myself to type out 350 words each time I sit down, but I’ve found that lately my brain wants to do logical thinking and planning rather than scene building. Oh well. I fixed the bigger errors I have in my plot, laid everything out so it’s easier to comprehend. Now I just need to actually type it all out. 🙂
…it might also help if my hubbs stopped wanting the Big Screen to watch Netflix every evening. Haha, oh well.
I’ve been doing a lot of researching and reading into scene-making and novel-writing, and I’ve come across some interesting thoughts, but the one which struck me the most was written by Randy Ingermanson. My favorite two posts are: Writing the Perfect Scene, and How To Write a Novel. His site has some interesting commentary on the state of the publishing industry, on vanity, self, and traditional publishing, and a whole lot of information on everything related to writing. I would say I wished I found this years ago, but I don’t. It came at a time when I was able to comprehend and apply the concepts I like.
That’s all for tonight. I’ve spent much too long on my blog as it is.
