So many things seem eternal, seem, in the moment, to be without end and culturally permanent scars. The great flood; the memory of dragons; the knowledge that there are demons in the dark.
I now present an unedited snippet from Notte, the dramatic hero of my WIP. SO dramatic. Oh my.
This month is not about producing something publishable. It’s about teaching yourself to just keep writing, to ignore the inner editor, and to let yourself just spill words onto the page.
“Do your words” may be the most important words ever for writers.
Oh, yes. I’m going for it. What about you?
I did it. Somehow, I did it, in between moving to a different state, crazy flu-illness, and family obligations. Holy wow.
TAKE THAT, ASTHMA
TAKE THAT, COMPUTER DEATH
TAKE THAT, LIFE
A slightly longer snippet this time, and one I rather like.
Somehow, I am actually up to date on my wordcount. Today’s suggested goal is 13,333, and I am up to 12,650, which means by the end of the day, I will be right.
I have succeeded. Notte’s novel is only about halfway done. It’s tying in with the Sundered sequel, too. I may be at this for a while.
