The Daemon

Day 2. I’ve spent the first two days re-reading my WIP and coming to the sad conclusion that it needs a lot of work. The story arc is loopy, the characters surprising in their uncharacteristic behaviour, the chapters flee in every direction. At least I’ve got something to work with, I guess.

But the daemon in this is Lord Time. Finish work at 7pm, come home to a wonderful cooked meal but do the domestic things – dishes, clean up, listen to everyone’s day and then try and fix the new computer. Again. Time by now is 9:41pm and I’m no night owl. The alarm went off at 5.30am so I’m about done for the day.

But NaNoWriMo is calling and I have this feeling that without that little pressure sitting behind me I wouldn’t even be thinking about the WIP and what needs to be done. So it’s working. Yeah.
