I have 38,397 words in a novel that I’m thinking will need 90,000 to be finished.
Today’s scene was actually the midpoint scene of the novel — the point where everything changes.
So it’s not in the right place, and to get it to fit the book and be in the right spot, I’m going to have to drag it to the midpoint, and then build out the events that lead up to it.
I’m okay working like this. Scrivener is, in fact, designed so I CAN work like this. What I’ll have to do is write several new thirty-word scene Sentences, drag them to the correct spots, and then go back and write the couple of disasters that took us to this point.
But today, like yesterday, the words flew, and while I had no clue what I was going to write until I wrote it, it fit, and it moved me, and I love what I got.
Days like this are pretty rare. I’m thrilled that I had two of them in a row.
