NaNoWriMeet: easy come, easy go

Published by at 12:55 am under blwio,NaNoWriMeet,Writing

Well, things looked very promising for my cut-n-pasted sections. However, partway into it, I began to suspect it needed more cool than I currently had in. I tossed Chapters 3-5 up for a writer chat with Steve and Nathan and houseguest Brad to try to figure out structurally more of what I needed to be doing with the chapters. As Nathan put it, “that’s not a novel, it’s a seven-layer cake!”

By the end of the evening I had a much clearer idea of the new and improved cool stuff in the next few chapters, with many more of the layers balanced together. Sadly, not very many new words today, though the groundwork for more words has definitely been laid. I won’t likely be losing much if any on the wordcount, since most of what I have needs to be re-written and added to, not trimmed or cut entirely.

New novel words: 213 (plus more notes)

Will go back to the expanded word accounting tomorrow…or perhaps the next day. We have a guest and will be attending the Texas Renaissance Festival tomorrow, but I’m going to try to get some writing done on the trip.
