This will never become a book.

progress is relative

Filed under: writing — kdefg @ 23:08

Day Four.  Added only 440 words, none worth mentioning.  Moving on.

Day Five.  Accumulated 4 hours of writing and 2,550 words.  Still under 7,000 words total and a full day behind on the quota, but feeling optimistic that I can catch up before the next weekend sets me back again.

For today’s excerpt, it was a difficult choice.  I had some long passages of description, and long passages of dialog, but nothing much actually happened.

The man in the dark blue robes stood up, while his companions in light gray robes stayed in their seats at the table.  Their combined aura showed Samuel that they had come to an agreement while he was out of the room, and he knew that he would regret not being able to watch how that had happened.

Right now, I am more concerned with getting the action started than with the words I’m putting down.  It’s a start, but it seems the starting line keeps shifting forward.
