Today wasn’t as productive as the last couple of days have been. I did 3,668 words and brought my total up to about 16,200. This is far ahead of what the site has so I’m pretty pleased about it.
Thing is, I’m a bit worried I’m not filling the scenes out enough even though “telling” isn’t as good as “showing”. The way I set a scene right now is pretty minimal, and I’m not sure if I need to add more. I want to try to leave a lot to a reader’s imagination, but not leave them guessing. It’s a conundrum.
Good thing is, once the event is over, I can do more work and have a beta reader or two check things out before I move forward with my plans to publish.
I can say that despite my small issues with my own writing, I’m enjoying the event immensly. We have several virtual write-ins scheduled for Friday through Sunday coming up , and there are more for the rest of the weekends of this month. We kicked off with two webinars featuring staff of the NaNoWriMo organization as well as a couple of published authors. They were all fantastic, and I can’t wait for the next one!!
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
