Daily Writing Check-in: April 19, 2019

Words/Time:  43 minutes doing preliminary work for finishing the new outline of “The Seeger Book.”

I’m still working through this character interview with the book’s antagonist. In the past, I have not been above pulling a ret-con in my conversations when my thoughts on something change part way through the conversation. But this one has been long enough, several things have changed, including some comments at the beginning of the conversation. As long as I don’t let it confuse me later when I re-read this, it’s okay.

But then there was one whole section that I realized needed to be different than we’d discussed, and different enough that I had to go back and make some changes. It’s a good thing I use erasable pens. I’m very excited that I’m really starting to get an understanding of the underlying forces at work in this story. I think the empty late-middle of the story is finally starting to get filled in with actual tellable story now too.

I’m hoping to still hit my Camp NaNoWriMo goal by the end of the month. That’s why I wrote exactly 43 minutes today (the amount the site says I have to write every day in order to win). We’ll see how well I continue to do with that.
