NaNoWriMo Day 23

Today’s word count: 1721
Today’s writing: easier than I expected
My energy level: medium

I can’t say that a miracle happened. I can say that I found something to write about. As planned, I picked a few things from my list of possibilities: a storm and bandits. Both kept coming to mind whenever I thought “now what?”, so I figured I should give them a try.

The real bonus, today, however, came from an unexpected source. When I complained that I was stuck, my sister challenged me to include a tea fairy, so I did. Sassafras is The Tea Fairy, and Wren knows a song about her. So I turned on the storm, stuck Wren, Greer, and Bayard in the bushes trying to sit it out, and had Wren sing the Tea Fairy song to the bard, who had never heard of it.  By the time the song was over, bandits were on the scene, so I finally made some trouble for my characters. I admit that at the moment they are pretty benign bandits, but still. No matter how they act, bandits are not who you want to meet in the middle of nowhere during a thunderstorm.

 

So I’m working on it. I still don’t know what happens next, but I got through another writing session successfully, and that’s something.

    1. You’re right, of course. Part of the fun for me is discovering the story as I go along. If I’m bored, then my readers are going to be bored, too. I’m still struggling to figure out what’s next. We’ll see how today’s writing goes.
