Today I sat down to start writing my new idea (the old one having become something of a struggle, which I’m going to come back to when it feels a little fresher), and immediately realised I’d come up with the two main characters, but not the supporting characters I’d need to make their lives actually work. I therefore spent at least an hour on The Sims 4, making some characters for them to play with. A surprising amount of trivia about those characters came to me in that hour, so that’s good. I really need to revisit my mains before writing tomorrow, because I feel like I now know more about the secondary characters!
Anyway, I sat down to start writing my new idea a second time, and wrote 576 words. It’s not as much as I’d like, but it’s definitely better than recent days (straight 0s). I’m now counting this novel’s words towards Camp NaNo, so that’s good.
Apologies for yesterday, by the way – I was surprisingly exhausted by playing hours of football with a very persistent collie and being cuddled by a wriggly springer puppy and went to be without writing a word when I got home. Oh well!
