Words are happening!!!
Last week I added 4k, give or take, new words to my current story. I’m a NaNoRebel, and there were some snacks. XD My disastrous christening was perfectly disastrous, and I surprised myself with some new details and character developments I wasn’t expecting. The dog in it is slowly morphing to have the personality of my dog, and I love it. 😉
Here’s a (very rough) excerpt of my writing, just for fun. 😀
As they neared the church, the sweet smell of apple blossoms rose to meet them and a few blew in through the open carriage windows.
Marinne caught one in her hand and whispered to the sleeping baby. “Soon, my child, there will be apples hanging from the castle trees, and you and I will pick them together.”
Harbor slipped an arm around both of them, careful not to disturb the small metal stars that had been sprinkled into her hair, and leaned over to speak with his son. “And very soon after that, cook will make wonderful smelling things from the apples, and you will grow big and strong from the eating of them.”
Marinne laughed, in an instant imagining their child as a little boy and then as a grown man. “But you won’t grow too fast. You will be our child for a little longer.”
*squeezes all my characters in a hug* *tries not to get too attached to them because of the genre I’m writing* #disastersabound
Now I’m at a little bit of a sticky spot–one of those ones where time needs to pass but not be skipped over. If it were a movie, I would do one of those cool montages with a lot of changing leaves and smiling and worrying and Danger Looming. I think I’ll figure out how to do that in written form eventually, it’s just a bit daunting. 😉
Ah, I just had an idea! I think that will work. Wow, okay. Now I’m excited.
I’ll have to postpone writing that for a bit since I have some very amazing company here, but I’m excited to get back to it and move these characters forward in their story.
