Set the characters goals, conflicts and backstory. Developed the setting. And wrote 23 pages. Most of it won’t make the final cut, but for today, it’s good progress.
I had the concept of the story in mind, but I didn’t do the pre-writing, a synopsis or outline or any of the other prep work. So this is a seat-of-your-pants book, and I haven’t written that way in a long time. Whether or not it’ll prove productive remains to be seen.
That’s it for progress on Day 1, which was yesterday.
