As hinted at in the title, this scene is from Nate’s POV, and is introducing more of the WHY of the whole story…along with adding what I hope are some scary promises to fulfill later on.
I got 376 words, and am 11K into the story. It’s running longer scenewise than I’d anticipated, so it may come out longer than 50K total. If it does, that’s okay. I’d planned to lengthen during the revision anyway.
The physics of Story (the world of our creations) and the What Is (the world we inhabit) and how each interacts with the other proved challenging—I ended up sitting in a Target-version Starbucks and working my way through a mocha frappachino and a full notebook page trying to figure out how everything links in to everything else.
Hit the end of both at about the same time, which was nice. (And only worked out because I drank slowly.)
So that’s my first day of the new writing week.
How’s your story coming along?
