Slowly, Slowly

If everything goes to plan, I might have this draft of my novel finished by next week. I got bugger all done last week because I finished work and seemed to have a mountain of running around to do. I did manage to get the final scenes outlined though. It felt like doing some kind of complicated puzzle since I'm writing from various points of views and had some stuff I had to get in there, in the right order.

To make it more difficult, one of the point of view characters is on her own in a bedroom. I didn't want to go from loads of conflict and drama to suddenly have pages of her waiting around. That would have screwed up the pacing altogether. I figured a way around that and now I think it's going to work. I just have to put the words on the page.

  1. It's such a great feeling when you figure out a problem. It makes you feel like you're moving forward. Great going!
