You know, I like to write in scenes. I write from beginning to end and then I’m wiped.
So it seems to be a bit of an issue that scenes for me are rarely more than 1600 words.
Anyway, 1632 today to total 10009. That makes me happy. My heroine told the hero why she was there, which, of course, he didn’t take so well. But neither she nor I expected him to. She because she read his file, and I because I’m just all about the conflict and I know it.
So I sat down to write out some notes to get me throught the next scene. I wrote some general impressions of the head of the bad guy agency and then WHAM!
Um, if the bad guy agency has someone inside the good guy’s secret mountain compound (such that they have the information they’re about to discuss in this scene), why don’t they just get its location from the aforementioned traitor and wipe them out?
Yeah, so my outline has a bit of a flaw, huh? I think I’m too stunned by my own stupidity to think my way around this right now. Right now it feels important to me that they actually don’t discover the location, as opposed to being able to get that information but feeling like other goals are more important right now. So I don’t know what to do and I think a simple solution is right there and I’m too sick and miserable and pissed off right now to see it.
And aside from how lousy that last paragraph was, I’m not really in that bad a mood. Not really. I am, however, out of it to the point of senseless babble.
