Good Morning! 25th of July 2019

So, I didn’t get up early and get a sweet word count start for the day. I dragged myself outta bed at the normal time (and I didn’t drag myself out, folks! I did not want to get up today). I did write 298 words on Extraction though. I’d have liked to got more down, but I wrapped the story up. I’m not happy with it, but it’s a case that I know I can do so much more with it. This was very much shot from the hip and as I wrote more ideas came into the world and I didn’t want to keep going back and adding a little bit here, a little bit there. I always feel it’s a bit clunky when I do that.

What I’m going to do now is print it off, read it (making the odd note) and then put it away. I’ve got plenty to work on in the meantime and when I’m ready I’ll go back to it and start gearing up for a deeper second draft.

I’m going back to my vampire book now. Hopefully writing Extraction has loosed the blocks I’ve been having with that project.

Have a great day, folks!

    • Thank you. I’ve realised what the emotional hook of the story is, but in the last few scenes. So I’m going to put that in and try and build it nicely in the second draft. Along with a few other beats. It did start off as a ‘shot from the hip’ short story, but it’s grown quite a lot and I think I can do something special with it.
