Another four pages written, plus a stressful/boring day (odd how they can be both at once). Thank goodness these kinds of days are almost behind me until August when classes will start back up again. It's really odd how two creative writing teachers can adore me, but my literature teacher hates me. She reamed the class on the papers she handed back today and looked over in my direction during it more than once. There are so many names I could think of to call her, but I guess I'll have to refrain.
Anyways, back to the writing news. The pages are coming along rather well. The characters are interacting in real ways and showing me different ways of how the story can come together than what I have now, as well as filling in quite a few plotholes while I fully decide what will happen next. Before when I was going through the National Novel Writing Month www.nanowrimo.org I focused on speed and getting through it, now the characters are more able to pop their heads out and make me do what they want without being unleashed to wreak havoc.
It's a rather good balance, I'd say.
