Hey everyone! I wasn’t expecting to be making any sort of writing update anytime soon, possibly not until July, but here I am. Shortly after my last update where I said I was going to take some time and just not push myself my muse returned and I’ve actually made some headway.
The story that I’ve jumped back into is one that I’ve been stuck on for a while – I had pretty much written myself into a corner because I was worried things were advancing too quickly and didn’t know how to slow it down without it seeming to move at a crawl or be too fall of minute things.
I knew a bunch of scenes I wanted to happen later but couldn’t figure out what to fill the space from A to B with. Well, that issue is at least partially corrected. I still have work to do, but at least it is somewhat flowing.
I know that I could just skip and come back to it, write the scenes I already have in my head – but I really try to not do that if I can. I like my first very rough pass to be pretty linear and don’t like to hop around too much. Of course that also means that when I get stuck on one story I have the habit of just jumping to another one.
So, progress report is that hey, there are new words and I’m enjoying the process again. I don’t know how long this will last, or if this will be what I work on for Camp Nano, but this is at least the current state of things.
How is everyone else’s writing going?
