day 6: a green block

Dylan is holding a red block, with a green block snapped on top. I wonder what he imagines it is? It might be a car, or a space ship, or a boat… we play this game sometimes.

“What is it?” I ask.

He says, very decidedly, “Green block.” How’s that for imagination?

NaNoWriMo Stats: end of day 5

On track and a good deal ahead 🙂

I had no idea what I would write yesterday, and oddly, ended up writing a good portion of a chapter, a huge crisis moment for Lexi, all the way ahead in part 5! (I’m only on part 2 at the moment) Which means the scene is only hypothetical at this point, but I do have the next few parts pretty well sketched, so it’s likely to stick I think.

I don’t really feel confident writing these kinds of intense, fearful, high-danger kind of moments. How do you pull those off without being melodramatic? How do you make them believable? That’s the question of the day 😉
