Day 37, May 4, 2010

Today started with the protagonist hearing from another oracle; there's no rule that says you can't have more than one. But you probably shouldn't have more than two or you might start veering toward satire. In this scene, the protagonist gets two clues that will figure into the ultimate outcome of the story, but at this point the clues are more perplexing than helpful. In today's second scene, another threat is received from the antagonists. At first glance, the purpose of this threat is thought to be mere aggravation, but then it's realized the purpose could be to confuse those whose job it is to counter the threat.

Put simply, today was a day of story machinations, gears within gears. Requiring the reader to keep paying attention.

Five-plus pages written was today's tally.

Day 37 of writing my new novel is done.
