“What are you? You still haven’t answered since I asked you the first time,” she said.
“How could I answer? Not even I know,” he said.
*** Writer’s Notes***
I might not have produced a lot of words today, but I’m working on strengthening the bonds between my characters. Some amount of confrontation resulted. Fun, fun!
“Lovely to see you. I was just trying to secure your release.”
“Lies,” she said.
I like to make some of the characters speak the way I do, hence the one word sentence. It’s probably rather Japanese of me to reply to something that would usually require more of an explicit elaboration with just one word. Either way, fun dialogue times!
So the timing worked out this year. This summer I went back through an attempt at a novel I started in undergrad and progressed to the point where I was no longer refreshing myself, adding scenes, or re-hashing characters. In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, I’ve been continuing my novel from where I left off and intend to finish the first draft this year! No more Japanese diversions, sorry to say.
I’m going to be temporarily updating this blog with small clips of what I produce any given day. Hopefully that means there’ll be a lot of posts to make up for neglecting the creative writing blog for most of November. They will be, indefinitely, out of context, but I’ll try to choose the very best out-of-context clip and have it shine simply because it is in an undefined situation with undefined characters, at least for you.
I can’t wait to follow my characters into the madness.
