Progress report – 30K

That’s another significant milestone. Could be 1/3 of the way there. Maybe a little less. But 90K words would work, if the story works in that few. We’ll see.

The scenes I worked on today were all difficult ones for me. Not in the sense of writing down the scene, but in the sense of figuring out how to make the scene interesting. At this point in the story, both threads are dealing with issues that are escalating the stakes, and both story lines involve some hopeful clever negotiation. It’s been my experience that making scenes where people are creating some official treaty interesting requires some real creative writing.

Maybe I did, maybe not. I’ll have to check in edits. But it feels pretty good. And I worked in a fair amount of world building as well.

May not get much done the next few days. Holidays and all that.
