I wrote 642 words, which isn’t a lot for a day off work. The plot is still unwinding in my mind, but every little bit I write gives me insight into what’s going to happen next. I truly believe that moving forward into the unknown is the only way to unlock the ideas that will allow for the next sequence of events. Even if some retro-tweaking is involved later, the most important thing is to keep going and produce something that maintains a basic shape. A scene, a chapter, a character profile, pertinent research. These are all usable components that are used as building blocks for the final product. Tomorrow, I continue on chapter 11. My goal for this sprint is to finish this chapter and to have solidified the plot for the second half of the novel. Today’s blocker: having to leave for Thanksgiving dinner at a friend’s house.
