This is amazing. I’ve managed to write a ton of stuff tonight, good stuff, stuff I didn’t plan or know I was going to write when I started today. I’m at 7034 words right now, about 300 ahead of pace. I will be able to go to sleep early tonight, if I’ll be able to sleep at all.
Here’s how is has gone down. I added a few details to the story such as Goldenrod telling Art not to leave the house when he’s away at night working on the farm. Well, then I came up with the idea Art would leave the house just to use the bathroom (no indoor plumbing). Then I wanted Art to leave anyhow and find some trouble, so I thought up a Fairy Carnival (market) in the forest. Well, Art goes there and has no money so he tells them his name to gain entrance (a big no-no). Then he decides to play some games and one of them is a ring toss where he can win a sword. Well, his name is Art King, so you can guess where this is headed.
The thing is I didn’t mean it to happen. This is exactly why I can’t do real planning or outlining. I just don’t think that way. I’m actually having fun writing this, which to be honest isn’t always the case.
I will post excerpt tomorrow. In the meantime, I’m gonna drink a beer. Yuengling Lager. Not Sam Adams, but still tasty.
