Today there was no struggle at all to write. My muse was back and speaking generously to me. Seven pages added to the manuscript. Good pages. Well written right out of the box.
Part of this productive streak was one of my favorite parts of writing a novel: the found character. Contrary to characters with extensive bios, found characters simply step onstage and say, "Listen, this is why I'm here and this is what I have to say." Found characters are always among the most interesting in a developing novel.
Lets the writer know he or she is still plugged deeply into a vein of creativity.
The plot lines in today's work continue to develop and interweave smoothly.
Day 17 of writing my new novel is done.
