NaNoWriMo Day 14

512 words tonight.  I never know how to feel with the section I’m writing about.  I am trained in screenwriting so am aware that dialogue is very important but with novel writing I find it makes the thinking process even longer and the writing flow even shorter, like I have to really think on what I want each character to say.  The inner dialogue and thoughts and emotion from the characters comes out much quicker than their speaking at this stage!

Does anyone else go through this?

I’m very pleased with that running total.


"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
