Yesterday went badly. I got 1444 words; I shut down for the day at 8:30 PM my time; and, each word came with a drop of sweat and two of blood attached.
Narrowed the problem down to failure of my line-for-scene outline to generate opportunities for conflict, so today’s first chore is going to be to re-think the line-for-scene, work out a couple more tension-filled incidents, and then get to work on actual words.
Finishing point last night: 16,636 words. Goal today: 19,636 words or better.
