So I’m at 27,497 and I just wrote a big chunk of stuff that made me very emotional, for several reasons. I can’t specify what happened, but I will admit that I didn’t expect to cry this much. Not that I cried for days or anything, but it was more emotional than I thought it would be.

And I’m not even up to the castle of the evil lord yet, and plot points for that are starting to build!

There are definitely parts of this novel that will need to be changed, like some “evil stuff happens” scenes that aren’t NEARLY bad enough. But there are also shining moments like this where even writing it pulls on the heartstrings! Some things I’ve written recently, as in yesterday and today, have completely shocked me. I may need to go back and edit a previous scene a little bit because of something I discovered about a character yesterday. And I realized today that my MC had to have another meaningful dream, except this time she doesn’t remember it at all when she wakes up. But we did get another useful item into the backpack, so hopefully they are able to use it without accidentally messing it up somehow…

I have about an hour before Mark gets here, and I plan on write write writing away as much as I can in the time I have, since I don’t know if I’ll be able to write anything else later, before midnight.
