Missed doing this Friday, but the week was productive. I finished the Beach Fair scene, and though I wanted to move right to the next scene, the scene I thought I’d write turned out to be useless. I was trying to thread in backstory, then realized that’s all I had for the scene–no other significant purpose, no real plot step, no significant action so it went into the trash since the words on the page weren’t doing anything more than taking up white space.
Still, I wrote 2,077 words during the week, and made considerable story notes for Shadow Walk in the Moleskine. A character I wasn’t giving much weight to in the novel might turn out to be important to the heroine afterall.
