Day 83 – Pantser Problem

I’ve finished the first act of the new book. Good news. Except that I always get stuck at the end of the first act. It usually takes me a day or two to figure out the next steps for the characters.

I hit that sticking point yesterday. My progress halted like I hit a brick wall.

Typically, when this happens, I start taking a lot of walks. Pounding the pavement helps me work things out. I walked a few miles yesterday and even more today. It’s helped me make some good progress with the story arc, I hope.

We’ll find out tomorrow when I take another crack at the book. I only managed 1200 or so words yesterday and none today. We’ll see what happens.

I also worked out the kinks for Final Guys that came up last week. I won’t know for sure until we attempt to go live, but let’s hope for the best. It took a lot longer than I’d hoped.

That’s about all I managed to do today. Some things came up that derailed me for a few hours and will do so again tomorrow morning. But hopefully I can get some work in around noon and start cranking this sucker out.

See ya tomorrow.
