Feets...dragging...

I'm at a sticky part of my Nano book. I stupidly put a Ceremony in, with the King, who offers Our Heroine a Boon, and even typing this sentence is boring me silly. Forcing myself to write the actual scene is even worse. It smacks too much of epic fantasy and requires way too much description.

I comfort myself by remembering that I've got some funner scenes coming up. But first, oh gawd, I've got to send Ana to a Meeting of Revolutionaries, where Nothing will happen, and that in itself is Significant.

No no no! I refuse to do two boring scenes in a row! Something's going to happen at the damn meeting. Maybe I'll blow up the building.

Yeah--blow up the building. Troll insurgents! Okay, maybe it isn't that kind of book, but explosions are good.

I actually think blowing up the building might work! I'm getting all excited about it now.

BOOM!-I love explosions!

K.C. Shaw said...

Muahahahahaha! Me too! And they jog the action along so well!

Maybe you should blow up the world and leave the building intact.

Lol! Hmm.

That might not work quite as well, but it would lend itself well to a post-apocalyptic novel, huh?
