Saturday’s accomplishment was a new plot twist and an 800-word synopsis of the book. I needed to write that; I just couldn’t keep my brain wrapped around the overall concept because I got so lost in the nifty details. No doubt it will come in handy when it’s time to market the thing.
Last night my wrists hurt too much to type anything, even an email, so I read for research (A Distant Mirror), then worked on Patricia Wrede’s worldbuilding questions, skipping over the ones that seemed painfully obvious and/or irrelevant, and answering others in detail. That made me think about a few things, like commerce, that were lurking in the back of my head waiting to make an appearance. That in turn clarified the bad guys’ motives. And then, as I was falling asleep, two short scenes ambushed me. I hadn’t planned to get any real writing done! I was quite pleased – it was a logical continuation of an old idea, just something I hadn’t thought of earlier. And it adds new twists to several plot points. I’ll type it up later and report the word count – it’s probably just 200-300 words, but good stuff all the same.
