I have gotten absolutely no writing done these past few days. It’s a combo of working until noon, which saps more energy than it used to (jeez, I hate getting old), V spending the last two weeks of summer vacation at Mom & Dad Camp, and constantly rewriting the damn opening pages in my head over and over again.
I was all set to redo that opening when I realized there was a character trait that comes into play during Act Two that I need to set up somewhere in the beginning.
Basically, I need to go through the entire outline and make sure everything flows, payoffs are set up properly and effectively, and that all of it is relatively easy to follow.
Not necessarily a piece of cake, but I may be letting the stress get to me. Time to enter Zen mode and launch a methodical assault.
Wish me luck.
