The Words: 971 words total for the day.
I had less success than I normally do trying to get some writing in during the Thanksgiving festivities, even with my Neo. But I got home earlier in the evening than I normally do after family holidays too, so I was able to get a little bit of writing in before midnight.
The Story: I’m heading into a very rough section, with a lot of darkness and violence. But it’s also a scene I wrote a very long time ago, before this story world and series of stories took the shape they have now. A lot of what happens in this scene can still happen the same way, but while I’ve learned from experience that it’s still better to rewrite something that I already did as writing practice or something, just in case it comes out better in the draft or in case something is different and needs to incorporated as different, it’s still incredibly hard for me to write it quickly. I am slowed down by trying to remember what happened before so I can do it the same way again, even though I tell myself not to do that. So basically, I’m glad I got as many words as I did.
Hopefully I’ll be able to power through it tomorrow so I can pick up the pace again and finish the draft in the next 4 days.
