This week’s entry covers the next two weeks, which can only mean that I’m taking a break and plan to do sod all during that time (other than catch up on your comments 💖 and some blog and book reading 🎉 ).
Last week was my first one away from writing the actual story. I’d thought it would be relatively simple and not too taxing on the brain… Until I sat down at my desk at 0600 on Thursday…
What a week last week turned out to be; I’m still reeling from it. I’ve got this weird detached feeling about it. It’s like this crazy combo of it was a year ago and that it was someone else’s experience. Basically, forgive the lack of detail about what occurred last week.
Another two scenes down, and the last two to go! It was difficult concentrating on the writing today–deliveries and setting up our new internet… and all the WiFi devices crying because they can’t get online. But we now have superfast broadband!
I’ve just finished writing the climax for the external plot! Another two and a half scenes in the bag. I cut the first scene for tomorrow in half to create two scenes to up the dramatic irony for the reader. Come on, who doesn’t love shouting at book characters when they don’t know something the reader does?
Have you ever set yourself a huge goal and then instantly regretted it? Yep, same here. With the goal I’d set myself last week, I was starting to have some serious doubts halfway through the first morning of the week.
That’s the first half of Act III done! I’m taking the next two days off, and I’ll try my hardest to not run around the house clapping and giggling like an absolute eejit. But, I think that ship has already sailed.
Trying to write when you’ve not had a decent night’s sleep in (counts fingers… socks off time) let’s go with a wee while is bloody murder. Luckily, dangling the carrot of our upcoming time off seems to be enough to get me doing the job.
I’m about a fifth to a quarter of the way through Act III, and I’m starting to see Adam in a whole new light. Man, he’s a bit dark and scary brutal when it comes to Elle’s safety 😍
