Transitions

>Daily Word Count Progress

>Yesterday was filled with driving and working. For whatever reason, I was exhausted…more than usual. So I listened to my body and went right to bed after work. Today, I felt much stronger and got 1700 words banged out. But, it’s a transition.

You know, those in the middle of a chapter where you can’t use a scene break or a chapter break, but you’ve got to get your characters through something or from one place to another while making it interesting or suspenseful… GAH.

Transitions are not my favorite. And it seems even love scenes are wearing on me. My CP and I are in agreement that we’d both rather write an action scene to a sex scene right now. Since we both write romance…that’s a problem.

There’s always genre jumping right? Maybe we’ll switch over to mainstream or thriller or ….??
Or maybe we’ll just tough it out and write the damned love scene.

Figuring Out the Next Step & Daily Word Count Progress

>I’m at the end of the section that I had worked out in my mind. Now, I have to venture forward. Need a break to figure out whose POV the next part of the story will be in, whether I need a scene break here or if I should continue on in my current character’s POV.

I’m in second third of ch 15 at about 67k words, so we’re at the final turning point and headed toward a rescue scene which also becomes the black moment/crisis. Somewhere before that, I’ve got to work on their internal issues and get them into bed together.
Hmmm, good thing I’ve got my three and a half hour drive to work tomorrow, cause I’m going to need that time to figure it all out.

I see the mist forming now.
