Ha! I remembered to update today!!
Words today: “On Topic”: 1741 | “Off Topic”: 1160 Daily Total: 2901 (Project Total: 31,182)
Now, you are probably asking yourself what I mean by “On topic,” and “Off topic.” If you’re not, well, now I’ve asked the question for you.
Today, I participated in an exercise I had seen written about on either twitter, or tumblr or reddit. (I forgot where I saw it.) I decided to start a conversation, or interview, with one of my main characters.
I chose Lilith, but I didn’t actually get to speak with her quite yet. Instead, another recently created character came to talk to me.Her name is Sevannah, and I must say she was a cute child.
This was one of the most fun writing exercises that I have done. I wrote it in first person POV, unlike my actual book. It really put me in the situation. It actually helped me a lot with a conversation that she starts having in the book, which led me to the 1741 words that I wrote on-topic today. I thought of sharing it, but I would have to wait until the full book was out because there are spoilers.
I also found out that my dear Lilith is quite tired of wearing white and being cold. She would really like to wear yellow because it makes her feel closer to the sun that she created.
Thanks for reading, let me know in the comments if you have ever had an interview with your characters! And if you haven’t, spend one of your writing sessions doing that. You may learn something surprising!
