I can take you away from here
Well, I did some free-writing at Starbucks.

Most of it's crap and unusable is this what NaNo feels like, but I think there's a nugget or two in there that can and should be expanded that I'd not considered until it came out of the pen.

I don't want to start every chapter with "The next morning at breakfast..." but it seems like the best time/setting for them to have any sort of conversation.

I don't know when to bring up what Guy's responsibilities will be. I need to do that, because he's not going to sit on his behind while the maids feed him bonbons all day. But I can't find a good place to drop that in.

And I need to work on the suspense. There's none. Being followed should be more suspenseful. Also swordfights should not be boring.


Bleh. I need a ghost for my action scenes.

This is my favorite part. I write stories sometimes just to get there at that point. Hahaha!

I want to just jump ahead and write it, but I feel like that's cheating.

Maids feeding Guy's bonbons is a perfectly apt image.

Maybe I should have him joke that that's what he thinks life as the prince will be like. Then Nat can smack him.

That's really actually what NaNo feels like. Tru fax.

Haha, that's totally what NaNo feels like. Ah, the tiny bits of 'aha!' that come out when you're not thinking about it...but you have to wade through all the crap you wrote to get to them, lol. Totally, totally NaNo. :)

(speaking of which, i should be writing....lol)
