Today I wrote 0/5K words on Her Other Life. I didn’t type a damn thang.
I did, however, completely redo the plotting for Acts 3 and 4. Her Other Life was supposed to be depressing but I just couldn’t do it!!!
I need the tropes of magical realism more than I thought I did. Hopefully, the new, happier ending will resonate more with readers of the genre.
I have six scenes left to write. I’ve learned my lesson – I have to write an act and then plot the next one. No jumping ahead and plotting the entire book. I will have changed everything by the time I get to the next act.
Now I’m off to my hysterectomy follow-up appointment and then my daughter and niece have their first day of gymnastics and then I’m making curry for dinner and then I might ACTUALLY watch some Sherlock.
Back to writing tomorrow.
