I wasn't planning on writing tonight as I had other plans but my stinking cold swiftly put an end to that. Instead I decided to fire up my laptop and have a peep at what I've written so far for novel #2...and ended up writing another 1,171 words.
I've stopped midway through what I think is a pretty heart-breaking scene. I don't know what it is about me but, at about the same wordcount in novel #1, something similarly devastating occurred (not the same thing but it still had a huge impact on the main character's happiness). I feel so moved I can't actually finish the scene! It's weird isn't it, a few blog posts ago I wasn't in love with my main character and now I'm having difficulty ruining her life because I don't want to hurt her and the other character I've introduced! I guess I fall in love fast.
Part of me thinks I should plough on with the scene while I'm feeling the mood and the other half thinks it's a good place to leave it so I've got a good scene to finish the next time I write. Hmmm...am going to have dinner and see how I feel in half an hour.
Current word count: 4,317 / 100,000 (4.3%)
