>Breaking the wall

>I finally managed to shatter the blockage. I won’t call it writer’s block, because I knew what I wanted to write, I just also knew it was going to be boring and suck horrific balls.

However, I broke out the good old fashioned way… a notebook and a pen. I wrote six full handwritten pages last night, a decent start on a very good action scene. If I can get past this chapter, I’ll be into the climax, and it’ll be time to kick ass and take names.

In other knews, I’ve also rediscovered an old tale I wrote god knows when… “Hacker Dragon”. It’s a sci-fantasy kind of thing, something vaguely reminiscent of the old RPG Shadowrun. I REALLY want to work on it, but I’m determined to finish Nightblade first. So I’ve decided that I’ll hurry up and do that so I can work on the second. I may try writing on Nightblade first, and use the second story as a carrot to work hard.

Sorry for the long time since the last post. I’ve been so caught up with schoolwork and trying to get past this block that I haven’t wanted to waste time with “can’t update, nothing’s changed” posts here. 🙂

  2. >I know how it is writing a scene you don’t want to. I had a story that was taking place 30 years before the rest of my novel. I ahd to write it out jsut so I woudl better understand what was going on in the present day story. It ended up being 12000 words or so, and I hated every minute of it, but it ended up in my draft anyway, so I guess it’s for the best. Sometimes the parts that you’re the least excited about writing prove to be the most important.
