Daily Writing Check-in: April 16, 2019

Words/Time:  37 minutes doing preliminary work for finishing the new outline of “The Seeger Book.”

And this is why it’s better to do at least a little writing work every day. The last time I posted, I said that in my conversation with one of the antagonists of the book, I had one more bit of information to get out of the character before moving on to lay out the plot points and see where we hit questions. But today…I had no idea what the bit of information was. Because I missed 3 days of writing, I read over the conversation so far, and read some other thoughts I’d written out on Friday when I last worked on this.

Doing this did lead me to some more solid ideas for the mystery-solving side of the story, so I’m glad for that. And then I decided to just go ahead and start talking to the antagonist about the events leading up to the climax. Hopefully if there really is something else I need to ask her outside of this, I’ll remember it along the way. Also hopefully I won’t keep taking days off.

Not surprisingly, I’m about 2 hours behind par for the goal I set for Camp NaNoWriMo. I may not win this month, but if I can keep coming back to the writing without letting this turn into another month-long break (or worse), it’ll still be something.
