Day 3 of NaNo 2010

11/03/2010 , 0 Comments

So far, I've managed to stay on top of my word count. Yay for that! I had a minor setback with my opening. I should have gone with the one I saw in my head, but I got lost and wrote something different that changed a lot of things in a negative way. Still, I kept it in there for word count purposes. I outlined the opening I would have liked to have had and wrote from there. I'll go back and fix it later. I did enough to trick my brain into moving forward and that's what's important.

I still don't have a title, but I'm not expecting one for another couple weeks anyway. Kind of leaning toward one, but I'm not sure if the story will take that sort of turn, so it's on the shelf for now.

It's the end of day three, but I'm feeling kind of burnt out. Not tired, but the doubt is setting in early. If I did the opening wrong, what else will be wrong? Will anyone want to read this? It feels really badly done. And it is. But so was everything else I've written until I went back and edited it. I just have to keep moving forward until the story takes off and I have some kind of idea where I'm headed. I think it's writing everyday that's making me feel like this. I'm not used to it anymore.

The soundtrack for this one is strange so far. I've been listening to Two steps From Hell, Taylor Swift, Linkin Park and Conjure One. Lots of TSFH. Trailer music is just epic enough to make your writing feel awesome, haha.

That's all for now! I'll post again when something exciting happens.
