I wrote random scenes, out of context, but, hey, it was NaNo. I could do that. Then, when that didn't work, I went to the end & tried to write that. It seemed to make sense since I already knew how the story would end - yeah, no. I wrote a steam-steam scene completely out of context & totally inappropriate for the story. What the heck - it made me smile. Then, as a last resort, I started every sentence with the words, "This sucks...." Sadly,these words depressed even farther.
My head in foggy dissolution or delusion depending on the moment; my heart sank & fell out of like. Then the month ended - Thank God!!! Now, I have 17 decent chapters and a host of word jumble rubble. I've had a few days to ponder the entire mess.
So I am left to revamp the outline, finish the draft (it's very drafty), & then clean it chambermaid style. I did learn some stuff though.
1. Complete outline - necessary
2. Cohesion - gotta have it
3. Half-cocked - not condusive
4. Finish line - definite, just not in 30 days - not this time
Ah well, if you're going to fail at something, might as well have a full house. Humility is just not the same without an audience. It's okay though; I survived, I am revived & the bruises will heal. Especially that ego one; it smarts even now. Must get the neosporting.
