My MC’s world is about to get stranger… and that’s saying a lot. 1433 words today, 32,637 words total, and a meaty scene

By Holly Lisle

I’ve been up and writing since well before seven AM, and today I left myself in a great position to pick up tomorrow right where I left off.

Today’s piece of the story unfolded nicely for me, the coming danger and adventure are closing in, and my MC is finally going to meet someone who’s been important in her life since she arrived in town — only from shadows and corners.

She’s not going to realize the two separate people are in fact just one person for a while yet, but I know it, and I’ve been waiting to write tomorrow’s scene since I realized it had to happen (BUT NOT YET) waaaay back in Book One.

I also had time to do some worldbuilding in my background document (uncounted words), to write out details about a couple of folks that I just discovered this morning, and to fix some early worldbuilding that has gotten better over time, but that I’d forgotten to document.

This is the kind of writing day I love, and I’m so glad I woke up early and couldn’t get back to sleep.

But now, on to the rest of the day’s work. I head off, already excited about getting back into this tomorrow.
