You know what was hanging me up? (Besides construction noise, schooling the kidlets, bookkeeping and life in general?) I didn't know where the next scene was going. One simple question, posed this morning after writing about three hundred words of aimless nothing, got me back on track.
The question, you ask? Simple. "What do you want or need to happen in this scene to move the story foreward?"
I know what you're thinking. "You dolt. That's the FIRST thing you should be thinking when you start a new scene."
Believe me, my life would be so much simpler if I thought the FIRST thing FIRST, instead of in retrospect.
Anyway, I've updated the word count ticker to the left to reflect the work put in.
Oh, and I'm stealing Saturday this week. Stay tuned for updates.
