NaNoWriMo Day 24: Connecting the Dots

Yes, I’m still freaking out. Yes, I know I’ve already “won” NaNoWriMo, but but but… /SCREAM!

The plan today?

Well yesterday I had a brainstorm and was able to figure out how to connect Point A to Point B ( being where I was kinda stuck to getting my family to the final town ).

However, now I need to figure out how to connect Point B to Point C ( the ending chapter, which is already written).

So that is where you will find me today, working on getting Point B to Point C and watching The Texans play the the Jags on my second monitor. YAY! Direct TV and the ability to watch the game on my computer since the West coast won’t be showing that game on the local networks. Gotta wait till tomorrow night to watch our Niner’s play though. (BTW… $15K fine … I call BULL HONKY ON THAT! Though I called bull honky on the flag on the play when Brooks got hit.)

So this is my view today.

Connecting Dots is the theme of the day. Then once that is done, I need to back up and write that lovey dovey stuff, that I’m struggling with so much. Why is that so much harder to write than the fights, death, and destruction of whole towns?

  1. Poor thing…Perhaps writing about love is more difficult because it’s more personal, the same way doing kissing scenes are difficult for most actors? Good luck connecting the dots, though!

    1. Points B and C have been connected and completed.

      Now to go back to the lovey stuff. It isn’t so much that I have a problem writing about the personal… its that it gets too personal. ie: Everything I write turns into a short story erotica and I mean XXX kind of erotica.

      That doesn’t go well considering I’m writing a Young Adult Novel and I have to keep it clean enough that the daughter unit can read it.

      I have to find a middle ground. That is the problem. I’ll get there. I still have a week. I can do this!

      1. I know you can do it!
        And if it’s any consolation: Twilight (centennial pedophile does it with teenager) was very successful with teenagers. Not saying it’s a good book, though;)

        Though I would agree that writing that sorta material for that age group is very challenging. At least I would think it is…never tried it:S

So whatcha thinking?
