So NaNo is over. I had a good month of mostly writer rest because I hardly worked on anything in November. I'm working on CB again and not just spotty work, I mean I've gotten down actual paragraphs because discovered my issue finally. Again, it relates to my issues with info-dumping and not placing plot important material in the right spot. There is a certain point in the story where dear Mr. Perkins is talking to Ms. Harris about his past that caused all of this. After I wrote it, I wasn't sure if what I wrote was exactly what I needed to write. It felt like he said too much and I felt that way about several instances where Andy was talking to Pam. I chugged on writing the story anyway and finished it feeling like my ending sucked. Turns out yes, I did write him saying too much. At the moment, I'm modifying several conversations and scenes to correct this error. At least I can correct it, not like a certain other project I worked on in which they entire POV was the fatal flow.
So everyone, the lesson learned from this story, watch what your frikin characters say or it will bite you in the butt when it comes down to resolving the conflict because there is little conflict to be resolved.
Also read, because I've been reading a lot of general fiction this year trying to broaden my mind on what an antagonist can be. It helped, it really helped. Next year I would like to get back into full swing writing fantasy fiction again. I've written about two sentences in Risen in about a month and a half because CB is so time consuming. Now if you excuse, me, I've got to finish a conversation that I'm editing and maybe, I'll look at the next part to be posted because that also, needs to be re-written and some more psychology type research. Also, I think I'm coming down with a stomach bug, lovely.
