A great day writing today, though I did already have a scene in mind. It’s not quite finished yet, but it is close — definitely tomorrow. I think it’s a keeper too, in some form.
That’s the thing I’m finding — a lot of stuff I’m writing I know won’t make the final cut, and that which does will be heavily reworked. But this free-flow of words, this meandering is really helping me flesh out the story better than a storyline would. I think I’m going to write up a “bonus” post about the pros and cons of doing an outline — at least from my point of view. Some people swear by them, and that’s fine. But for those writers out there not sold on the idea, well, I say go for it without an outline. I’m discovering way more stuff than I would have staying on the beaten path.
Anyway, getting a touch of the flu I think, so I’m hoping I can hold it all together. I’m in it now, so I can’t avoid getting sick. Hopefully though, I can minimize the symptoms enough to keep working tomorrow and get my hour in.
PS – passed 40,000 words today — that’s worth noting.
