NaNoWriMo Day 3

Action is a mixed bag. So many scenes amount to talking heads not doing a whole lot, and it's really hard to make that not… boring. And then, when you do have a real actiony action scene, it's a lot of work. I keep reminding myself a draft is a draft, even if it's the second draft. It doesn't have to be perfect. I reinvisioned a lot of this novel, which means I'm writing a lot of new material from scratch.

Get it out now, edit it later.

Second draft is  photo buttonphp-03_zps8c3abb5d.png done.

actions scenes are very difficult to write well IMO

You'd think I'd have some practice after writing The Destroyer, but TD had the benefit of multiple characters with super powers, and 100's of TV episodes to base different confrontation scenarios and mythology on. Now I'm doing it all from scratch, and that's hard.

you'll get no argument from me.
