Update
Gosh, I am so behind it's not even funny. My eyes are watering because I woke up early to get in at least 2,000 words and I still didn't make it!

The weekend is jammed full of activities. I just know I won't get much work done. Now, I'm getting worried. ::frets::

Gosh, I hope so. Frankly, I’m getting rather sick of Padmé and Ian and Anakin and Dooku and Yoda right now. :P I’ve tried righting from the lesser character’s POV just to change things around and I’m still tired. I’m wondering if the 50,000 word count is not making me make the story longer than it ought to be.

Nice Bingley icon. I loved the movie. :D

So glad to know that I'm not the only one feelign that way. There's a part of me that's dreading the editing to follow like the plague. Absolutely dreading it. I have one major sub-plot that was seriously retconned that I literally need to rewrite. Then the characterization of Jocasta keeps changing because I haven't decided which voice works best for the story.

*g* I've adopted non-grinning Bingley as the face of my hero in my Nano attempt this year, so looking at him is my attempt to get a bit of inspiration back :)

Oooh, in that case...

I guess this cartoon!Padmé might be the closest thing to the face of my heroine. She rarely wore her hair in braids as a Senator, so if you squint, you may just see plain ol' Lady Naberrie in this icon instead of Senator Amidala.

But if you don't really have enough story for the word count, you could always finish the story and then start a second to make up the difference :) No one would know, and you'd have written two stories.

Wow, can I do that? Without going back to edit the first one first?


That new unexpected subplot is a great idea. Maybe I'll write the romantic backstory, or even the crime as commited by the criminal from his/her perspective.

I like that. I'll reverse psych myself into this. :P

Love the icon, BTW. :D

Does this make you feel any better?

You can do it... Just find some fun in it. Maybe go back through the ideas you had when you were coming up with something to write for this month and see what sort of ideas you haven't incorporated yet that you could use, to maybe come up with a new subplot that way?

I have full faith in you, either way. ♥

A little yes. :P But I'm really proud of you - and I said so in your entry. Hi Fives!

Maybe go back through the ideas you had when you were coming up with something to write for this month and see what sort of ideas you haven't incorporated yet that you could use, to maybe come up with a new subplot that way?

That's what I'll do. I'm thinking of writing more from the murderer's perspective...

Well, they say the challenge is finishing - not necessarily finishing with pulitzer-prize winning material.

I suspect that when you DO go back to edit (especially if you leave the thing alone for a while hwen nano is done) you will find MUCH to delight you.

It's not that I'm giving in to my internal editor. It's just that right now I hate the plot and I think it's cheesy and convoluted!

he he. :)

Sorry - what I was trying to say is that in the end, no matter how many things you end up not liking about the story, I'll bet MANY GALACTIC CREDITS that you will find nuggets of gold amid the dross - wonderful ideas, descriptions, characters, lines of dialogue, scenes - whatever - that you can use later in different ways.
