If you look to your left, you will see how things are progressing. I sat down and created a table to keep track. This way, I don't have to keep posting all that stuff. I got a lot of work done today. I did 10 pages, which is what I have averaged all along, and just over 800 word increase. Some of this was from working on the ending.
I'm in a "this stuff is crap" stage. I've been away from it three weeks and it has had a negative impact. I am moving forward, as you can tell but it really isn't very good. I want to just chuck it and start over but even I know that's crazy. I need to get this first run through done and then start over.
I started creating a Story Bible. Ever since I talked to my writer friend, Molly Daniels, I wanted to do this. I was going to do a hard copy but I've since decided to just organize some folders in Scrivener with the information. I can print it all out later.
I wasn't sure what exactly goes in the Story Bible but I ran across several sites with details on this. I put those on the River City Writers' Blog for others to access. The Story Bible, Book Bible, or Novel Bible contains character sketches, world building details, place details, and outline - anything that you want about the story to give you a source to check for continuity, usage, spelling, etc. Basically, it is a reference book for the story. I just read a few of the blogs and got started on the one for LSR, being mindful that I was killing time.
I'm at the end of the day at last. Now, I'm going to go shower, get PJs on, and I hope go to bed early tonight. I'm really tired.
