Why Is My Blog So Boring?

Because I’m writing. I’m not expecting to write anything more interesting on the blog than ‘wrote 1000 words today’ until I’ve hit my 80,000 word target. You never know however, I might find something interesting to say about the positive benefits of blue over black biros. Now isn’t that worth sticking around for?

Despite the flu bug killing my word count, I’ve also be re-jigging my  story outline.  The overall story has a three part structure. I only really know what happens in part one and I’ve just tinkered with that a bit. The first 5000 words told me a few things about the story I hadn’t known and I wanted to work those back into the story before going any further. One of my viewpoint characters has morphed from a drunken wreck to a stony hearted missionary, but that’s actually not as big a change as it sounds.

Only 150 words today. I’ll try and get a real chunk done tommorow.
