I feel like I’ve turned a corner. Earlier today I broke down the daily word count goals and attached scenes to each of those days/word counts. Having that new map to work with made it easier for me to tackle writing 2,700 + words this evening.
Now, having finished this writing session, the story is taking me to a new place (as of the last few paragraphs) that I hadn’t mapped out in my new scene map. I’m okay with this and will look at how to revise the map and give myself some ideas for tomorrow’s write-o-rama.
In non-NaNo news, I was thrilled to learn that I won a copy of Sage Cohen’s forthcoming book, The Productive Writer. It’s due out on December 1 and feels like just the book I need right now (the subtitle is Tips & Tools to Help You Write More, Stress Less and Create Success). Bring it on! Once I receive my copy, you can count on more information, and hopefully even some Q&A with Sage here at Motherlogue.
