Post-NaNo Update: Thud, the Sequel

…And this problem area is being particularly sticky. Probably because I have an image in my head of the start of the scene, but not exactly how the scene should end.

Note, that’s different from the results of the scene. I know who’s alive, who’s not, who’s still standing and who’s in need of a hospital. But the image of the scene ending… that, I don’t have. Yet. Frustrating.

I’m not sure yet if the bunnies need refueling by way of reading/watching some fiction, if I need to tackle some plain old editing now that I have a fresh print of the draft (had a coupon, whew), or if I just need some sleep.

Betting on sleep, actually. That and fiction refueling; my weekends tend to be – not, shall we say, times to relax.

At least the bits I have gotten seem solid. This should be an interesting competition, when it’s done….

  1. Ack, I hate it when scenes don’t cooperate. I always wind up staring at a document for an hour, then giving up in disgust and going to read fanfiction. *Rolls eyes* I hope you sleep well, and I wish you a great time while refueling! 😉

  2. Take a break and get some sleep. There’s latent learning, and sometimes writing is like that. If you have a furry companion, spend time with them. Try to cook something new. Boot everyone out, make your favorite drink, and watch an old favorite movie or read a book. Que up an audible book and head for awhile. Have fun, relax.

    Avoid the psychology work, wait, that’s me. Sorry.

  3. Sleep is usually underrated. But I know a lot of people who put writing away for a while when it gets that way, maybe take tomorrow off of it and make it a break.

  4. When in need of fight scene fodder — not that I can actually //write// the slagging scenes as well as I want to, grr — I tend to pull up something silly like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Or pretty much any Jackie Chan or similar flick. They have //good// fight scenes in them.

    Young Justice also has very nice choreography. …it also has Conner, whom my bunnies keep threatening to kidnap at the drop of a freakin’ carrot crumb. Oi und vey.

  5. Having read your earlier comments on your interest in looking up Pathfinder, it boggles my mind that you are not only contemplating doing research as part of editing a 180-page fanfic for fun while editing an original work of 100,000+ words, but said that you had to. Especially with housemates who sound much less helpful than my parents and that allergies that make too sick to write when mine never have. I have fewer of them and the timing wasn’t right.

    Where do you get this kind of work ethic?

    On a related note, I have no idea how to assemble the kind of notes that would actually help my writing process instead of becoming the main project. A project involving enough vegan cabbage rolls prepared with bok choy to rupture the poor character’s stomach when combined with all of that other food. I only ended it when the database went down permanently. Good thing, too. No one should have to eat 400 g of raw rapini for any reason. Not even because tofu requires too much water for one writer not to malign it as just as bad as beef.
