I really wish I was the type of writer who could skip around and write the good scenes and then just build bridges, but when I do that, the bridges never get built. I don't want my novel to be an archipelago. I want it to be Key West. *sigh*
I guess I'll continue to march through 50 pages of exposition of Cora at the Academy, just so I can blow it all up at page 60. No one said being a writer was easy ... :)
So, it's the 18th already and I'm a little bit over 36K. I'm really pleased with that number, since last year I only made it to 12K and gave up. I'm just not so pleased with the story yet. Well, I shouldn't say that, because I'm in love with the plot (Um, and my male main character, but that's a different story), and I know there are great, great scenes to come. But right now it feels like I'm just slogging away at the stuff that *has* to written so that I *can* write the awesome ones.
