So looking at my Work In Progress (WIP) last night, I realized something. Kind of a big thing really. One of those things that make you want to stub your toe so you have a legitimate reason to say not nice words.
My MC is a wimp.
So far she has not shown the tenacity and spirit that I know is in her. Right now, she is being pushed around by fate and not putting up much of a fight. I had such high hopes for her.
Oh well, this can be fixed, actually it will be fixed in Draft 1. I realize I have a lot of rewriting to do. Every night it grows but you know what? It isn’t so bad now that I know how.
I’ll hit 50,000 words tonight in Dragon Masque. I expect 30,000 to 40,000 words to finish it. Then, well, I’m going to let it sit. I have a few short stories to work on, some drafts of things I need to get back to, and maybe start on another large work to start. Yea, lets face it, I have an addiction. Writing. Nothing wrong with it, I just need my MC to straighten her a$$ up.
