I’m being interviewed at Olsen Jay Nelson’s blog talking about The Edge of Darkness and NaNoWriMo! Go check it out.
Word count goal: 10,002
I didn’t write a post yesterday because I didn’t make the word count. I missed it by about 200 words. My fiancée and I went out in the afternoon to socialise (for Guy Fawkes Night, which is a big deal in the UK) and didn’t get back until late, and by then I was too tired to write any more.
And tonight I’ve struggled a little with getting Tina to fall in insta-love with the hot Polynesian witch, but I think I’ve sorted it out now. I don’t want to say too much because I’ll spoil it, but I had already hinted at something when the same thing was suggested to me.
Tomorrow should be easier. I’m almost at the first peak of the three-act model, so I have to write quite a bit of conflict tomorrow.
At least I’m still on track. I’m not letting people charging ahead with their word count get to me because although they think it’s about quantity over quality, I refuse to stoop and write below my ability. I’m aiming for quality as well.
