Camp Ramblings 7-11-2014

Well, I got caught up — briefly.  I never got ahead though, and now I’m working 5 days in a row which is killing my writing.

It doesn’t help that I woke up today feeling like I’d been hit by a truck, either.  I feel miserable and can barely concentrate on anything.  (It’s going to be an interesting night at work…)

I also ran into a snag in the novel…

Remember that minor annoyance who turned into a plot point?  Well, his death spawned a scene that was supposed to be an emotional healing ritual for all of the people involved, but one of my main characters got rather caught up in it and the scene didn’t go quite as planned.  *sigh*  I ended up going with my original ending for the scene and left myself a note to figure out how I got there when I do the rewrite.  (I’m thinking of retconning the whole thing and having the ritual be focused on the main character involved.  It would actually make sense…)

But it’s not as bad as it sounds:  the stats page on the Camp NaNoWriMo site tells me that at my current rate I’ll finish on August 9th, so that’s not too bad, and I’m only a couple days behind on par, although that’s going to change between now and Tuesday, which is my first day off.  By Monday’s post it’s going to look a lot worse…
