Writing update & WIFYR tidbit
Wrote my thousand words again last night. I was racing my laptop to the end of its battery and I won! They weren't amazing words but they're the start of an important plot point. One thing I learned at WIFYR, from both Ann Dee Ellis and Carol: how to inject emotion from your own life into the life of your MC. We wrote exercises with the original incident IRL and then took the emotion we experienced and wrote it into a scene with our MC. It was very interesting and it was fun and a good reminder that our MC doesn't have to experience exactly what we do to go through the same emotional reactions.
