11761 is the overall total now: 1027 new words today. One of the incidents I wrote last week occurs too early in the story, so I’ve gone back a bit and I’m now filling in the intervening incidents. But I’m still using the technique of a fresh Write or Die document to do the words, pasting them into the end of a master Word file, and then at some point I’ll copy it all to Scrivener, play around with the scene divisions, and get the scenes into the right order.
But that comes later. FIRST, I want to lay down a serious number of words. It’s a new technique for me, but so far it seems to be bearing fruit. We’ll see what a hundred thousand words of Bad Draft looks like at the end of the day!
