It’s already at the end of November 1st and even with the extra hour I only managed to write my opening sentence. A full 5 words!
I awoke encased in metal.
That is usually how I work, though. I spend a long time figuring out what opening to use and once I do the story flows more easily from there. I think the act of testing out opening sentences forces me to develop a style and tone for the whole peice, thus when I finally pick one I know what to write next.
We’ll have to see how it goes. My first real day of writing will be tomorrow. My goal is to finish the first chapter and most of the second. Around 2,000 words.
