Worked hard (and exclusively) on my second Armello short story last week. This helped me through a tough part of the story.
Pro Tip for myself: when you hit the Great Swampy Middle, keep going!
At the beginning of last week, I dreaded writing, because I didn’t know WHAT had to happen next. But I bribed myself, saying, “Just do a little, to prime the pump.”
Ends up I didn’t have to know what had to happen next, because the longer I sat there, the more crazy interesting things began to happen! All of the sudden the section that looked murky and intimidating turned into a FUN SURPRISE FEST and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.
It feels like the ending’s around the corner. But a proper title? Nowhere to be found. :(
Right now it’s 22 pages long, (compared to Stone Seekers‘ 16 single-spaced pages) but I also have a much larger cast…After all, what’s a wolf prince without a pack?
(Oh, and according to my chart, I’ve written 41,948 new story words this year! Whoa!)
