I really should have noticed these red flags before committing them into type, but I blame sleepy brain. Thankfully not everything I wrote from before is rubbish. I may have to swap some scenes around, but I can worry about that later when it's revision time.
In other news, I think I rediscovered something about a character. And by that I mean that as I'm piecing it together in my head now, I realize that it sounds very familiar and fits really well, even though I don't have it on the notebook in front of me. I believe that I just re-remembered something I had thought of before and didn't put down, which is a good sign that is must be how the story goes. I am terrible with writing detailed outlines.
I admit, while reading that Terry Brooks book Sometimes the Magic Works, I felt a little guilty as he described how much time and detail he puts into outlining so that he doesn't need to revision so much later. I have tried. I even got word processor tool things that force you to break things down into scenes and do mass labeling. I was ambitious for a little while, but if I start getting that detailed then I just need to write it. I guess I'll discover for myself along the way if I need to adjust how I approach things or if this is simply my style, as chaotic as it may seem, but it's mine and I'll love it for what it is, damn it!
In short: Day 5, 2619 words today, giving me a total of 13101!
What was it I said? 15,000 for Friday? I think it's looking good!
