Nanowrimo Day 13

OK, so it’s not as fun anymore. Today, I racked up 2,228. Which puts my total at 18,482, but it should be at 21,671. Basically 2 days to make up. And there may be 3 days over Thanksgiving weekend I won’t have access to a computer (one connected to the Internet anyway…too bad I don’t have one of those thumb drive thingies).

I’m starting not to like what I’m writing each day as much, feeling like I’m only writing some of it because I need to write. I question the believability and intelligence behind certain things I’m having the characters do and/or say. And one thing that’s always crept into anything I write that involves werewolves, but I worry over how well it’s executed–or even if it’s necessary–is writing from the wolf’s POV. Or, sort of. Trying to get the narration to take on the shape of what a wolf’s thoughts might be like. And then I have a conversation between a wolf and a raven that will probably look downright silly.

Well, just gotta keep going, and I’ll be able to have a better sense of how well it all fits together at the end.

    Andrew,

    Don’t brood over whether this first draft is perfect–or whether it makes perfect sense. (I think that the idea of a conversation between a wolf and a raven is intriguing.)

    I don’t know if you’ve seen Robert Altman’s “Nashville”–but the late Henry Gibson contributes a song called “Keep A-Goin'”:

    …Ain’t no use to sit and whine
    If a fish ain’t on your line
    Bait your hook and keep on tryin’
    Keep a-goin’…

    Angele ❤
