Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Since I just started yesterday, I don't have much progress to report.

But, I wrote about 1000 words yesterday of a scene that will presumably start the story and that ghosted around my brain for some time now. I'm not really happy with some parts, but it's a start and I can't edit later on what I don't have.

The scene isn't finished, but today I wrote on another scene anyway. To be honest, I haven't expected to write anything at all today since I haven't managed to do so in the morning.
But there was an incidence that made me angry and just the depth of this emotion made me sit down and convert it into written words.

That means of course that now I have two unfinished scenes at different parts of my story. But since even Erich Kästner (the author of the book 'The parent trap' is based on) admitted in on of his books that stories come to him in a chaotic manner, I'm just just going with the flow for now.

All right, it's midnight and I finish at 1753 words for the whole project.


  1. Two unfinished scenes are better than none. I actually did a short story challenge in May; those short stories that helped me develop the plots for two novels.

    Whatever works, works. And words are a good thing.

  2. I'm with Shan on this. It's better to have two unfinished scenes that you can explore for ideas and inspiration in the future than nothing. Stories have to start from somewhere...

    sounds like you have your start. :-D
