A slow day today. I wrote 273 on the short story during my lunch break, and 197 on the fanfic piece. I probably wrote another couple of hundred words on the fanfic piece but I think I was over-writing the scene I was working on. It’s a scene that is in the 1100+ word region and I think if I add more then its going to not only drag the scene out but I think anything else I added would feel like I’m shoe-horning in details just for the sake of it. Details I could probably add in at a later time and make them feel far more natural.
I was hoping for a few more words tonight, but the scene I was on wasn’t a straightforward scene and I’d like to think the next couple scenes will be a little easier to write and I’ll get some momentum going.
