NaNoWriMo day 19 Part 2

Just about broke the 30K mark and that was a struggle. Mostly just life getting in the way but then at the same time hitting a point in the story where it was difficult to get to the next turning point. It needed something in between where it was and that point but couldn’t think what it would be.

So in desperation – I made up and completely new, random character who is totally out of character and tone of the rest of the characters in the book so far – and threw him in to see what would happen. Just the scene introducing him had given me a few thousand more words as well as adding some impetus top the story and enthusing me.

So I would say to anyone struggling -make something random happen and see where it goes.

I say that – I can’t say whether its going to work out yet or just make things worse.

Let’s see.
