It feels good to finally get those scenes I’ve been running through my head onto the screen. I’m definitely continuing my non-linear approach to drafting but I’ll continue checking my outline to make sure I don’t go off on a tangent I can’t rescue myself from later. Plot holes can only be filled so much.
So, I read over my first day’s work, just because. I took note of what I already wanted to fix but didn’t want to edit anything because a) editing as you go is a no-no, at least for me because I find it to be counterproductive, and b) it will wreck the daily word counts and overall totals.
Still, it’s funny what you can come up with when you’re sprinting. I’ve read interesting POVs and quirky dialogue, but I’ve also read repetitive phrases in the narrative that are such rookie mistakes. They even occur within a couple of sentences of each other. Yeesh.
Now that I’m feeling slightly better, I think it’s time Bilbo Watson and I jammed once more. I wonder how What Does the Fox Say? sounds on the ukelele? 😉
