I'm deep into the heart of my NaNo MS, but I'm feeling kind of buzzed, that fried feeling you get from not enough sleep and your brain going a mile a minute, which leads to the dreaded brain fraggle. Too wound up and tired to sleep, lol. Can't hardly keep your eyes open, but you must. You know what I mean?
Today I should easily surpass the mid point of my NaNo MS... But...it's the hard part of writing... that part of the MS where, without continuing action or a new scene the middle drag occurs. Your characters should be well acquainted by now, not that they know all the other's secrets, because it's hard to keep the characters fresh if there's nothing left to discover.
How I avoided the dreaded middle drag... I introduced a new character, someone the main character needs to understand. Someone she hopes holds some of her answers. I guess I could have added a love scene to keep the excitement going, but it didn't feel right.
So, how's everyone else doing?? I haven't been posting a lot, lol, but I hope to have a flash ready for Friday. Keeping my fingers crossed. (I know a lot of our flash writers are NaNo-ing this year, yay!! Go! Go! Go!) Don't feel bad if you decided to sit this one out. Only two weeks left of NaNo... I hope everyone is having fun!!
Well that's it for me. Time to jump back into the Life After Death.
