Holy jumping party cats, what a difference a day makes!
I finally passed forty thousand words today!!
And the realization that I was getting bogged down by one scene.
So with that realization, I decided to skip the offending scene for the time being and jump right into the scene that will set up the climax.
In all actuality, it wasn’t that far of a jump.
But for myself, it was a huge breakthrough. tonight after fighting to get through the scene that transitions from the second act the third act was just what I needed. I fought this scene for what I realize now was far too long. once I made the jump to the third act, I found that I had written over fifteen hundred words in a little more than an hour.
And most importantly I like what I wrote. And that is the important part,
So the climax is going to be aerial combat between two steam-powered airships. And an ethically ambiguous decision by the protagonist’s captain that he has to react to.
Don’t judge me, this is steampunk at its finest!
Don’t we all love those times when things just seem to fall together in our writing.
I am really in the home stretch now.
