11/6: 527 words. I had planned to continue writing the scene that I was working on yesterday. But as I was writing, I had an idea for a conversation that takes place a couple of chapters down the road, so I decided to go ahead and write it.

So now I’m feeling pretty good about how the Turning Point Progressive Complication is going to unfold for Middle Build 2 (the second half of the Second Act). This time last week, I had a pretty good understanding of what was going to happen in the Ending Payoff (Act 3) but no idea what Middle Build 2 was going to look like. Now, it’s slowly taking shape.

Afternoon update: I wrapped up work early and had some time to write this afternoon. I wrote another 672 words, bringing my word count total for the day to 1199. And I’m at a good launching place for tomorrow.

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.
