Today i wrote!
i only wrote 900 words, but at least i wrote them. I also managed to get over the 'what the crap is going on in this crazy world i invented' speed bump. I drew a map and everything. Maps always help, looking at a map can sometimes tell me, just through land division and type of soil and water resorces etc, what the people living there are likely to do, how they will act...
i introduced a new character today too. he is the last of the list in my list notebook that i created in the prep phase. he's a talking fox. i couldn't resist a talking animal, not in a story like this.
Best part of Day 9: Realizing, as i type up my longhand, i seperate my contractions so i can have the extra word in my word count.
