4/22: 1432 words. My wife and I took a little getaway for my fortieth birthday. I wrote about 900 words early this morning. Then we got out for bit and went for a hike. When we got back, I wrote another 500 words or so.

Today was a bit of an odd writing experience. I hit some patches where the words didn’t come easily and it feels kind of clunky. Then I’d get another couple hundred words down before hitting another rough patch. I am entirely unsure about this section of the story, in no small part because I’m figuring it out as I go. And even though I’m now nearly 3,000 words into it, I still don’t know how it’s going to resolve. There is some vital information that needs to be disclosed to the protagonists, and I have no idea how that accomplish that.

But that’s tomorrow’s problem.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
