I've just written a conference, where everybody pretends to talk about the Aimless One, but they're really talking politics. A lot of it, by the nature of the scene, is summary of official stand-points. It's 18k words of close, consecutive and linear prose (with the only breaks being PoV-changes). Writing this was quite tough. It ended in a semi-climax that I didn't expect until I wrote it. I think it works, but I'm not sure. Writing this monster of a scene was quite exhausting, and at times a chore. What I'm really worried about is that the scenes that felt like drudgery to write are as boring to read.Originally Posted by onions
So I need a bit of a break to see how to make the tansition to day two of the conference. No more than a week, perhaps a week and a half, as two days have passed already, and then I'll write again.
What's written is written; what doesn't work gets addressed in the edit. But what's been written up to now needs time to settle in my head.
And I'm pretty much always worried about one thing or the other about my writing, so me being worried doesn't worry me.
The Order's giving me the most head ache. I want to be fair, but I just don't understand them.
