It’s happening again. In the last two weeks I’ve managed to ‘front up to the page’ most days. I set myself a new target of 500 words a day, much more achievable than the 800 a day I tried earlier. I’m behind at only 4487 words when I should have 6500 by now — not counting today’s quota. [sigh] Maybe I will catch up.
At 87,615 all together, I’m approaching the pointy end, everything must come to a head soon. I just love it when things come together without me having to think too much about it. During the outlining debacle I looked at one scene and wondered what on earth I was thinking, having no idea where it was going. In another, I had some tom-foolery happening between the brothers, just to emphasize their relationship. And, lo and behold, those two odd scenes unconsciously came together to make another scene make sense with no need to go back and foreshadow.
To catch up today, I have to get 2513 words on the page. it is do-able, as I have written about 2300 in a sitting before.I better get stuck into it then … right after I get a coffee … and browse Reader … and check my emails. 🙂
