Got the dialogue for a very important Shin-tsu scene down and more of the cool new characters I worked on yesterday, including a huge speech that may or may not be villainous. Wrote a little more than yesterday, too.
Current wordcount/Goal for the day: 1682/1667
Today I started another sideplot, was a lot of fun because the setting allows for some nice experimentation and, failing to do that, I can continue to rip off Ender’s game. Got some good example of gun porn for it too, which made me notice my tendency of going on and on about subjects mid-narrative is alive and well. Also, got some “Last Battle” scene lines right: I had an idea of how I wanted them to go, but this is it.
Managed to meet the goal. Didn’t go too far from it at the request of my loved one and it was for the best; even though I knew I could write a little more, there’s no need to rush it at first. The fact remains I was able to get a solid set-up down and that’s more than I can say I did when not practicing. Teach your kid to walk slow and steady before he can run, yadda yadda.
How are you guys doing?
After the traumatic events of the Slaughter Festival and the return of an old acquaintance with a craving for vengeance, will Koukishin Shinzou get the peaceful days he desperately wanted in the first place or was the whole experience just proof he is unfit for that kind of life? What awaits Kouma Yon after her manipulation being discovered and the situation seems to go deeper than initially assumed? What will happen to Reikoku-sensei, and why does her backup plan terrify Shin-tsu so much? How did the unusual events of that day affect Megumi? Will Akane come to terms with her insecurities and confess her love before it’s too late? What led Rin to considering breaking the band up? What is this town’s secret? What is Mystery? Who is Shiina Ryo?
A literary tale of creation, destruction and reconstruction comes to its conclusion. More characters! More sideplots! References! Casinos! Otaku culture! Psychological drama! Audio engineering! Secrets! Time travel! Metaphysics! Cooking! World War II! Gravity not working properly!
The ridiculously vague synopsis is there and Chiri’s face explains it very well. I’m not going to count the words I have already written, which would be technically “cheating”: in the following month, I really plan on writing 50k words and hopefully wrap the story up while doing so.
