Day 3: getting faster.
Today’s writing session was slightly shorter than the other two. After drinking several cups of tea in the morning, I sat down at my keyboard while feeling just a touch hyper from the excess caffeine. In just over three hours, I managed to get down another thousand words. Caffeine, it seems, really does do wonders for the ol’ word count.
So far, I’ve finished two scenes in just over three thousand words. Honestly, I was hoping to do these scenes within 2k, tops. I plan on trying to cut them down when I get to the redrafting stage, but for the time being I’m going to leave them as they are. The last thing I want is to get bogged down in editing at this early point.
Tomorrow’s scene, by the way, largely consists of my protagonist tripping out on fantastical drugs. I’m still not entirely sure how I’m going to write said scene, though I’ve had a rough idea for some time. Here’s hoping it comes to me after a good night’s sleep.
(Apologies for the shortness of today’s post. Tomorrow’s one will be a bit longer, I promise.)
