It is Sunday, 8:35 and I got up and sat down at my computer to have an early start. That was about 30 minutes ago and so far I have browsed my tumblr-dashboard and had the idea of writing a journal entry instead of typing words into my novel.
I copied photos into it though. As points of reference for the world I'm failing to create. I have come to realise that I suck at description. Scenery, people, landscape, the weather. Not gonna do it. I write "it snows", "they are in the mountains", "he" is enough to describe the protagonist. But somehow those photos could help... I think.
My wordcount last night was:
11989 / 50000 words. 24% done!
This doesn't suck too badly. About the content, well I cannot say as much. I set out with an idea, started by writing something completely different, ended up by stealing a character from an old novel fragment and am now trying to steer the thing back onto my original plan.. whatever that was. I had a feeling, an idea of a certain mood and atmosphere. Somehow I have yet to create that.
I have some days to go. We'll see what turns up.
Have an excerpt:
He quickly spoke: “So, where can I find you when I need to be busted out of prison again?” “I don’t know. Depends on where I am.” Cal thought that communicating with her was kind of frustrating.
Yes, thank you. Wonderful dialogue. *lol*
How are you doing? Anything your novel has thrown at you and which you now have to deal with?
