But I've started writing.
A whole 55 words. That wasn't very much of a word sprint.
But I finally saw last night, as I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep how I'm going to slide into the climax, and what the climax will look like...and I am going to get to use a modified part of the motif in the beastly bridegroom folktale pattern, along with the twisted sleeping beauty one I've been using all along...It's not that far from my original plan...but I did have to reorganize and move some scenes around.
I even got a glimpse at how I should do the denouement...
Pink must really want me to finish this story. Now if she'd just wake up, so I could get moving today. I was really hoping to hit 20,000 words today. We'll see if I make it.
Broke through 20,000 words today. And I've finally got my protagonists to meet, even if it was only briefly, and resulted in the heroine fainting...LOL.
So far at 20,046 words. Chapter 10 was a real slog through - another chapter that wasn't in my outline, but needed to be there. Chapter 11 might be easier going; I'm setting up some things which precipitate a crisis which will lead to a chain of events that will bring the protagonists together...
But I'm definitely tired. I hate the thought of taking a full day off, so I doubt if I will, but this is really feeling like a job with no days off. Maybe it's time for a nap.
