I made 3k yesterday and wrote out a scene that was my writing phobia. I’m super proud, and the scene is finished so now I just have to fine-tune and move on, and I can forget I ever wrote that out.
And forget I bought two ebooks for the sake of figuring out how to write it, only to put them down because they were either too absurdly laid-out to read, or I already knew everything in them. At least both were on sale, so I didn’t spend more than five dollars.
Let’s just say that writing a sexual scene as an asexual-spectrum writer feels awkward and a little gross, especially knowing the motivations behind both parties are less than noble. But enough about that, this is a PG-13 website.
(By the way, for anyone reading, asexuals just people who are not attracted sexually to people. There’s a whole spectrum from demi/grey-sexual to fully asexual, and we are capable of performing sex acts, but we don’t feel driven to take part like other sexual orientations might.)
Sorry for the above, I just know there are people out there who won’t know what it means in relation to human sexuality, and the wikipedia article can be a lot to take in at once.
Anyway, back to writing and story. Today, my absolute minimum to accomplish will be 2k words. I will be pleased as heck if I make 3k. I will buy myself a research ebook if I make 4k. I feel confident I will make 3k today, since the slump seems to have left me. To all the other writers from the NaNoWriMo Chatzy, may the word wars be with you!
