Two things. I realized that I forgot a big nugget that I was supposed to include in the Lucien/Cornell/Thane fight. Because of this forgotten bit and the general lack of punch that the fight has, I’m going to have to rewrite a large chunk of that scene. I didn’t want to do that last night because I wanted to push forward with the story.
Which brings us to number two. I’ve got Thane and Demarco in the car together, they’re supposed to talk about what Demarco was promised by the vampires and then Thane gives him the big, “why you don’t want to be a vampire” speech. The problem is that I went to write that sceen and couldn’t remember any of the stuff I’d wanted to touch on with the scene. I banged my head on the screen for three hours last night and didn’t get anything out of it. I’m going to let it stew in the pot that is my head all day and really bang it out tonight. I think Tasha is going out tonight, so I should have the house to myself. I’m hoping to get lots of words tonight.
I really need to crank the words this weekend. I’m going to get 2,000 today and 4,000 saturday and sunday. That means 10,000 new words by this time Monday and I’ll be over the 100,000 word mark. Wish me luck.
