So clearly this blogging EVERY DAY for a month thing is...not the easiest. But I knew that going in. With my semester starting again and my racing toward the finish line of my current WIP, I'm sort of at a loss for topics.
I mean, I could totally tell you about the new Macadamia Oil deep conditioner I used on my hair yesterday--primo! But I'm pretty sure that's not why you're here.
Anyway, I've been struggling a bit in the middle of my novel. Because middles are hard.
But the other day I had this great epiphany (don't you love when those happen? why don't they come more often?) about the story I was telling and what kind of story I set out to tell and how it was all going to come together.
And just like that, the middle stopped feeling so hard. I had direction again, and a way out to lead me towards the end. I got to write another pretty important scene that I think wins at life because it both scared the crap out of me as I was writing it, and then made me laugh. Actually, thinking about one part had me hysterically laughing a few hours later.
Clearly I'm either a genius or insane:-)
So I'm going back to plotting. I'm almost at the point in my novel where I stopped plotlining/outlining/prewriting and now need to figure out a few major things before I can reach the end I've been working towards.
Oh and I'm at 62,040 words. Which sounds nice in theory, but actually means my book is getting TOO big!
