The title. Right there, it sums up everything I’m feeling about my NaNoWriMo story.
I began part 3 in an interesting way. It’s just a piece of monologue from what could be considered a bad guy. The main character can hear him, but is paralyzed, which is also established in that monologue. At the end of that scene, a big twist.
And then it all just sucks. 3000, 4000 words of blah blah blah that just doesn’t feel good. I sort of kind of know what I want, but don’t know how to get there.
What I am sure off is what comes after all of that.
So, for the first time in my NaNoWriMo project, I need to skip a few scenes. Up until now, I was able to just keep on keeping on. Scene after scene, I managed to follow the narrative in a straight line. But now I need to take a leap of faith, skip some things, and write what I already know comes next.
Hopefully, this will illuminate the missing links. Somehow, what happens next after next will give insights into what happened before in better detail.
Anybody else having to do this?
