I missed my target yesterday. I missed my target by a huge margin. Around a hundred and fifty words total.
On the other hand, I was sick for three days straight.
I will make up the time over the next few weeks. Or today, not sure… I might try for 5K, I’m not sure.
My deep dive into character has been continuing. It’s hard to write someone who is so different, someone who is not at all like me. I know, I keep talking about that, but it’s still true.
The character, in this case, is a twenty-one-year-old politically correct bisexual girl. I’m a forty-something straight male who tends to offend people a lot. It’s a stretch.
I have been reading a lot of stuff from people in the characters demographic, and watch a lot of youtube videos from people like that. I think the reading probably gives me a truer voice, but the flavour probably comes across better in the videos.
Anyway, that’s all I have for today. A longer post is coming tomorrow.
