I had a fantastic time writing my novel The Harvest this morning. I closed out another Alan section, and moved onto the Ashley section. They finally encounter each other, if for a brief moment, and I tried to slow down that scene. Ashley for her part, also sees Alan, but does not, cannot, acknowledge him to protect him.
I also have a risque scene with Dean Andreanna who is probably too vile a character. I may soften her up a bit, not her shitty habits and inclinations, but add something to give her a more human quality. But, she is a predator in many ways, and every awful sense of the word, and if there is a death scene, hers will be appropriately excruciating and violent.
Well, I accomplished all of my writing goals for today. So, I'm off to rest. In real life, my husband was trying to take me to the doctor, but I wanted to stay home and write. (Plus, I'm not running a fever.)
I want to stand firm, and make this writing a daily habit. For sure, I think I can finish this novel before the summer semester starts June 6. I really do. That probably means I have to put in a good five hours of writing a day or more. And what an immense joy that is!
Well, I hope you reach your writing goals today.
