Day 9 JaNo – 2027 words today, 20075 total
About the only good thing I can say about today’s writing is that I broke the 20k mark. I’ve gotten very bored with the original storyline, and I think it showed in what I wrote today. It didn’t help that I had to get them from one place to another, making most of today’s words a description of them going somewhere. To my credit, I did *try* to spice it up by having them stalked by demons for part of the way, and revving up some conflict between some of the characters, but the fact that I was bored writing it probalby isn’t a good sign. Thankfully, they appear to have finally reached their destination, so with any luck the next time I revisit these characters I can get them to do something interesting.
I wonder if my troubles getting to quota today are related to abandoning my outline. I worked essentially sans outline both yesterday and today. Yesterday it went beautifully, today, not so much. But in any case I’m happy to be done for the day.
