This morning I had a 9a.m. Faculty Contract Negotiation, which threw off my writing schedule. Well, I should say it threw off my blogging schedule. The kids are also coming home, soon, so I will have to make this one short. Earlier today, I did manage to write for about 40 minutes.
I crafted another good scene in my novel, The Harvest. Lister finally tries to get an upper hand on Ashley, but fails. I figure, Ashley has already been through enough, but I will deal with these pacing issues later. It is fun to write high-action scenes, but my novel doesn't have to be riddled with them. It's not a damn video game or hard core movie after all, but they are a joy to visualize and put together on paper.
I am also playing with the timeline a little bit, but I need to make the shifts clear. Sometimes Alan's narrative starts right as Ashley's ends, but not always. I don't want to confuse the reader, so these will have to be future considerations.
Anyway, I couldn't sleep last night, and it has caught up with me, so while I would like to write some more, my energy is like, "Really?"
Honor your writing energy. #Resist
