Novel Madness – Day 02

Here’s what this is about.

Today was another disappointing day from a word count standpoint, but I made awesome headway on fleshing out my outline and I’m pleased with a lot of the ideas that came from it.

Today’s word count: 521

Total word count: 1,429

My favorite thing in today’s writing: Well, it was a structural breakthrough, which is not so fun to list here, but I will say something that helped that structural breakthrough was the song “Buried In Water” by Dead Man’s Bones. Which, if you haven’t heard it, is AWESOME.

    Ooh, Dead Man’s Bones. This is a very cool idea, btw. Glad you’re doing it.

    Thanks! I know it’s not an idea that will interest everyone, but I hope those that do find it an interesting experiment will follow along and those that don’t will just ignore it. :)

    Keep in mind that developments like your structural breakthrough are important; it’s not just the word count. Sounds like it was still a good day!

    @Keith: Totally. I was super excied about the structural stuff – and it broke down walls for a lot of other stuff I was worried/concerned about, but not exactly easy to describe/understand in a blog post. :)
