I discovered that I’d headed in the wrong direction yesterday, to the tune of about 1000 words. Didn’t cut the words. Just looked at the situation, decided that I could save the dialogue and simply relocate the scene to a different location.
Wrote a note to myself to do that [in brackets, like this], put in a # sign to indicate a new scene, and picked up where I should have left off yesterday.
And the writing has flown today, with Catri and Genna doing something they are SO not supposed to be doing, and the outcome of it going to have immense repercussions.
Today, the writing is great fun. That it wasn’t yesterday should have told me something then.
