Word count: 299 so far today.
I locked myself in my office at lunch today as the little Squiggle was at daycare to start writing. I haven’t finished for the day yet, obviously, but I’m writing this now as my dinner cooks. I’ll write more after I put the Squig to bed.
Those 299 words were pretty hard to write actually – and by that I mean they were emotionally difficult, not that I couldn’t find the words. I’m starting this book during the first crisis my character Gwen is going to experience, so as not to bore people with lots of backstory or exposition. As I’ve mentioned, for a lot of this story I am drawing on personal experiences and this crisis Gwen is going through is one I’ve experienced myself, so reliving it sucks.
