Clarion Write-a-Thon 2012: Days 20, 21, 22

Well, this isn’t going well. There are a few problems with my goal, one of which is that scenes are being melded together and split apart and ARGH.

Stats (loosely):
Scenes: 8
Words: 9,001

I don’t really have much to say right now, except working hard and oy. I feel like I need to complete a story, all of a sudden, before I can get to the next one. I need to figure out how my characters work, how their backgrounds work, and most of all, how it makes sense that they got to where they are. Still, I’ve outlined my way there, so maybe I don’t need to?

Origin stories sometimes don’t work out so well, but I have a killer-ish first scene, and it would be a shame to let that fall to waste.

Argh, choices. And I’m too immature a writer to know exactly what to do. >.<

I've been reading short stories in my non-writing time, and it's helping with the writing blocks, somewhat, save when I go, "Wow, I will NEVER write that well." I'm analyzing what works and what doesn't, and it's helping a little.
