NaNoWriMo 2012 - Day 17
The Dime
No writing yesterday, and a long delay today until I actually started typing. I think some of my steam is gone. However, I am thankful that I have been verbal about undertaking this endeavor, because now I have people that could potentially hold me accountable, and I don't want to disappoint!

Today's 2164 words are a good effort to make up for the sporadic week, and makes me feel as if I might still make this happen. My writer's block was partially freed up by a good walk, and partially by accepting what I viewed as too much coincidence as just what makes the story go. I also made a realization that my narrations need more character perspective. I am not just following A around - I am embracing the way A sees the world. I did a good job of this in my interlude, and the rest of the story deserves that same level of detail.

Since I am now over halfway, I think I need to take some time and plot out what still needs to happen. It's clear now that this draft is a single day, not a collection of time. So the resolution that might have once been now seems far too convenient to wrap up the same day it was introduced. Meaning that's not my main conflict any more. What on earth am I going to end up with here?
