I just finished writing a transition chapter from scratch (2,000 words) that needed to be written but was causing the rebellious kid in me to go: “do I hafta?” However, I pushed through (trying to remember the definition of discipline) and today, I’ve been able to move on to another chapter near the end that had not made me happy.
I had huge changes to make (in terms of location and confrontations) and as I started going through the re-write, I was like: “Yeah, yeah, okay I see that, yeah this should happen, yes, YES! hahahahaha (delighted chortling) YES YES YES!”
You know you’re going the right direction when your current scene goes back and pulls on the strings of other scenes, making a completed arc or circle in theme and plotting. All naturally, without meaning too, without intention – writing magick happens!
