My entire body of fiction progress today has been 19 Story Sentences. In raw word count, that’s (at max) 570 words (and I know a few of the Sentences came in a word or two under 30).
But each of those Sentences has been tough to get — each includes the protagonist, antagonist, conflict, setting, and twist for the critical action of one chapter of the novel.
In other words, I figured out just under two thirds of the structure for the fourth book in one sitting — which is pretty good.
Tomorrow, I’ll have eleven more Sentences to go, including the last one… which has to both end the story and foreshadow the primary conflict in Book 5.
I know what that conflict needs to be. Have NO CLUE how I’m going to work that into the end of Four, though.
So tomorrow should be a lot of fun.
