...finally appear to be unblocked on Camwolf! Colour me exceedingly relieved. 18k now (ok, so that's a pitiful increase on last time, but dammit, I have a houseful of people *curses snowy weather*).

Hm, though. It seems as if it will be rather shorter than I had thought. Not sure if this is a problem or not.

The more I write, the less I understand people who say things like they spent a year thinking about a novel, and then they just had to write it down. One of the biggest problems I have with longer stories (anything over 15k) is keeping it all in my (apparently rather disappointingly-sized) brain at once. Still haven't come up with a satisfactory solution to this.

Yes, I've had stories that seemed to write themselves, but they were very particular about waiting for me to sit down at the keyboard before they started, and I couldn't have told you beforehand very much at all about how they would go.

Have started writing the end of Camwolf, which has been very useful in letting me know what has to happen in the middle.

12k. But at least they've shagged.

11k. And I baked a cake.

Didn't really feel I'd done much on it today, but as I'm now over 9k it seems I must have. Have done the flashback to Nick's turning, and made an important decision about werewolves in my 'verse which - yay! - will make my life easier. Also I have jotted down a fair bit of dialogue, which usually helps.

And now I am feeling somewhat bleary. This is probably time to do a bit of research I have been putting off.

And ooh! I have just remembered a scene that came to me earlier today *dashes off to write*

Hm. Well, this morning I was dispirited, but I have spent the day getting to know Julian a bit better and I think I'm starting to understand him. All I needed was to get him to talk!

One thing I am not so sure about is introducing a 2nd POV character, which is Julian's BFF Tiff. This means inevitably giving her a rather bigger role than I had planned. I really don't want to use Julian's POV, but we weren't seeing enough of him with just Nick's POV.

7k now, but there is at least one scene which will have to be cut or at least radically rehashed.
