I have had a really good writing day today, but only because having got stuck into all the stuff I was supposed to get done, I then went on a literary bender. I think I might have cheated a little - I was writing Silent Deeds before NaNo and got very stuck on the plot - well it was taking me somewhere I didn't want to go at the time because I felt very uncomfortable with exploring a part of my psyche.
Well today, whilst writing away in the personae of my ditsy character, and then replying to her as the more mature one and reflecting on her current intriques - I realised I could go off on a tangent with the previous one.
So I do - and to hell with the consequences. Then I realised after having written loads that it was absolutely useless and didn't fit in with the tone of the previous story - but didn't want to lose the wordcount. So I have found a way of utilising the wordage into the current plot, by making a subplot - a small scion story - are you still with me here?
I am concerned that having written the words without NaNo in mind, that isn't really on - but because they fit in so neatly with what I am doing - and I have written them today and they are new words - well to hell with it and hang the consequences. I now have a blog and a short scene.
Tomorrow is another day....
