100 Days of Writing – Day #4

Project worked on: Burned (urban fantasy/paranormal romance)

Starting word count: 7700

Ending word count: 7894

Time written: 20 minutes


I spent most of the day today working on a paper for my English class so I didn’t sit down to write fiction until late. It’s nearly midnight. I did get in my twenty minutes for the challenge, but I’m going to keep writing and see where this scene goes. It’s flowing a lot better than the previous scene and I’m excited to keep going. Writing a mystery storyline is a lot harder than writing a straight up romance, or even a horror story.

I knew it would be. It’s one of the reasons I’ve always been hesitant to write mystery. But Alek is talking to me, loud and clear, and she doesn’t seem willing to quiet down just because I’m intimidated by her genre.

Back to the keyboard!
