Fast Draft, Day Three

Posted By on May 17, 2012

Mountains, from Girl's Week. This is the wallpaper on my phone right now. It inspires me!

And still learning.

Day three, and I’ve written 20 new pages. I like this Fast Drafting. Especially tonight. I stopped mid-sentence in the middle of a scene which I know is more than talking heads. Occasionally, as I’ve been moving forward, resisting my absolute compulsion to edit, I’ve known I needed desperately to get to the point of the scene instead of dancing all around it.

Not tonight. I’ll have to cull, but this information is there in a form I think is almost right, and it’s a huge deal to the heroine. She’s revealing a secret she’s kept for too long. Not because she trusts the hero, but because she has no choice. He has a need to know. I like that motivation to do something that stretches her character.

Can’t wait to see what happens on Day 4!
