I’m not going to lie–I’m looking forward to taking a break from the daily writing. I’m the sort of person that spends the 11, not November, months looking forward to my annual NaNo, and then November wishing that I hadn’t signed up for such a big committment.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it, it’s just a lot of work. So if, like me, you’re feeling a bit burned out, then that’s okay. Writing is hard.
Was that death?
Dr Frost says yes.
I say I need proof.
Dr Frost says trust my memories—they are proof.
The sound of the gunshot, again and again and again. Is that proof?
Another excerpt from my novel! Today, think about how you write–what style do you use? A fun activity to try is to change your style based on what’s happening in the scene. Use shorter sentences to convey fast, choppy scenes. Try repetition or simpler words if your character is struggling to think. Try longer, descriptive language if your character is thinking or studying something.
