Today was one of those days that you power through. Most of the 1,680 words I wrote today will go through significant changes. There was a lot of complicated military and battle field situations to unravel and put back together again. The great thing is that Lee has incredibly detailed journals to work off of and he’s just an email away if I have questions, which puts me way ahead of the curve. If I didn’t have the journal or access to him, I probably wouldn’t even be at the writing stage yet. I’d be conducting interviews and getting background information. The plan is to write the first draft and then do the interviews I need to fill in the holes.
Tomorrow I’m in an all day workshop where I’ll be working on a scene from my play Never Living with a director and some actors. I’m pretty stoked. The workshop may cause a hiccup in my NaNoWriMo production, but I’ll find a way to catch up.
