Thanksgiving writing

Hope you guys have a happy Thanksgiving! I have a whole week off, so I'm cleaning, running errands, picking people up from the airport, doing laundry, and at some point every day, writing.

I got to the final scene of my vomit draft and had no idea how to end it - big speech? Heroic sacrifice? Humorous prat fall? - so I decided to go back to page one and fill in my missing scenes so I'd have a better idea of what my characters would do when they got here. That means it's time to write the less interesting scenes.

Today I had to fill in a scene where a coworker convinces my protagonist to stop by a taco stand to pass on information to the owner of said taco stand. And what do you know, in the very next scene I'd already had her eating tacos. Complete coincidence, unless you take into account how much I love tacos.

Tomorrow I'm cooking a turkey for the first time. Wish me luck.


  1. I'm spending way too much time applying for jobs and not enough on writing.

    Good luck with your writing and the turkey.
