I didn't get a chance to update my wordcount yesterday, so I'm not entirety sure where I'm at... My computer decided to do this thing where it goes to the bottom of a page, jumps back down as you try to scroll up, and if you try to type something, there will be a large number of spaces in between each letter.
There's a section of my story that I'm not quite sure how I plan to write it - at the moment, it seems like it's going to be nothing but letters between Kaz and Suzie. But this way makes me a little sad, because then I can't really show Kaz's reaction to Suzie's awesome letter that sounds like a breakup but is really her informing him of the son she just had (she's only a little annoyed that he wasn't there for it...) but then, if i do show Kaz's reaction.... I'm no sure how to just stick a letter in the middle of he narrative....
But i find that forcing myself to miss the bus from school is a very good way to get writing done. It means I'm stuck in a quiet building for about 3 hours with no internet access (not that my school doesn't have computers, the rooms are just locked and the teachers don't want to stay there an longer than we do...) no TV, no bed, no nothin'.... When I'm at home, candles can be helpful? I like candles.... But for some reason, I can't listen to music for this year's NaNo. I didn't really have a problem last year, but this time around it's more like "Oh! music! I must focus all of my attention on it, and completely ignore everything else!"
I'm having some problems writing the very beginning of the story... It's partially me, not knowing what 7-year-old Suzie is like, the fact that I apparently write in a more dialog-driven way, how I don't know how little kids bully each other (I suppose I was bullied a little by the kids in my neighborhood but at the time I thought it was fun...) and a few other things..... Imma stop talking now.
