Hey folks, how are we all doing today?
Yesterday I ended up with a little over 1000 words, but as I was driving to work I’ve realised I need to put more tension and suspense into it. I think it’s a good foundation so far but I need that sense of uncertainty unknown into it. I think I can write the logistics of a scene well, but I need to add in that fear element. This sequence is one of the characters not knowing what is going on, and I need to make sure the reader gets that, and the risk factor in this part of the story.
That is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, working on the atmospherics of a story. I think some of my writing is a little too clinical and I’m not happy about that. I’m not sure how I can do this, but it’s something I’m thinking out.
Today, I’m going to have a busy one. No work, and I’ve got my great aunt coming over for dinner (we’re her bubble) and I’m looking forward to seeing her. I do want to get a good thousand words written well.
So, time to get cracking! Have a good one, folks!
