Pages Upon PagesPosted: November 15, 2011
I’m right on schedule with my NaNoWriMo – 23,470 words! Just need to get to 25,000 today and I’m half way there! Of course most of it is crap, but that’s besides the point. Writing out of sequence helps – my characters are two most emotionally stunted persons you’ll ever meet, so writing the “sequence of love” (or “sequence of luuuuuurve” as I always call it) is such a pain that I decided to get it out of the way first, and now I can just go back and fill in the blank.
Come to think of it, most of my characters are kind of emotionally stunted. Unless they’re kids. If they’re kids, then they’re angry. I write angry kids and emotionally unavailable adults. I don’t know if that’s because I don’t know how to write emotional people, or because I’m emotionally unavailable myself. Two sides of the same coin, isn’t it?
