Well that was a nice improvement from yesterday. Considering I had to work close to ten hours today and still recover from the cold I have, I am impressed I managed to write close to the average I needed to be on par for Camp NaNoWriMo.
What helps me is that I am doing a lot more telling than showing. I know, it’s a bad habit to do in writing, but to help make up for the word count deficit I had, I needed to write more! I hope I don’t have to rely on that technique.
You see, I don’t want to spend time just writing paragraphs on how awesome my male MC is. I would write about how awesome I am, but wouldn’t you want to see me in action? I want my male MC (or any character in my story) to actually do awesome things!
Readers didn’t just hear about the Twelve Labours that Hercules had to do, no they got to hear how he accomplished them and why he was a divine hero. It was like we were with Hercules as he slayed the Nemean Lion and captured Cerberus.
