I’m going to be a slacker today and not finish my chapter even though I have the time. The day’s not over yet, but I just don’t feel like writing.
Although I wrote 1,129, not all of those words are in Chapter 9. I wrote a section and it just seemed like it would fit better with the events in Chapter 10, so I moved a chunk and then added a scene to Chapter 9 that will lead into what’s supposed to happen there. My MC gets a job as a club DJ. He’s stoked. But it’s a scene that seems to need some enthusiasm, so I’m just not feeling it today.
This might be due in part to the fact that I really just feel like reading. I’m at a really good part in a book and I want to get back to it, so I’m distracted. But, now that I’ve declared myself done with writing for the day, I’m done forcing myself to stay away from it.
