Note to self: be more expressive with this That’s the plan. Tomorrow is April 4th! The heat is on! Time to climb that goddamn mountain #writers #write #novel #novels #read #reader #reading #noir #book #books #wordseveryday #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #handwritten #transcribe

What’s that saying? When one book closes, another one opens? Pulling a lot together tonight in outlining. Feels good – yesterday I found more issues than solutions #writers #write #novel #novels #book #books #read #reader #reading #noir #handwritten #transcribe #OfTheNight #indyhall_arts #wordseveryday

I’ve been working but not updating the last few days so I’m gonna have a few today and tomorrow. Yesterday was a lot of logistics and researching. I’m learning the bounds and necessities for my characters and it’s been enjoyable. #writers #write #novel #novels #book #books #reading #read #reader #noir #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #wordseveryday

“Look: taking a step back doesn’t mean taking a step away” Transcribed about 9,000 words tonight. Back to writing tomorrow. #writers #write #novels #novel #book #books #read #reading #reader #writing #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #wordseveryday #OfTheNight #noir

“No, but they seemed sold that there was one. That’s, like, documents, right? No one actually reads newspapers anymore” First two pages down in the new notebook. Uncle Sam sang pretty songs while I was at it tonight. Tried to provide a bit of levity in this scene after the last few had grown intense #writers #write #novel #novels #noir #book #books #read #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #wordseveryday

Mission: crushed. I finished my #notebook early this afternoon, went out and did errands, came back, and later found my new one at the doorstep. I put down 20 pages in two days #writers #write #novels #novel #books #book #read #noir #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #wordseveryday

“It was a group of three hopeless humps happy to be about to forget everything they shouldn’t, passing by the diner from the direction of the cowboy bar and sad looking Chinese food place” This one’s for you, @adamteterus. That Chinese place may look sad above but I know the joy it is to you #writers #write #novels #novel #noir #book #books #read #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #wordseveryday

“Waves of helplessness undulated through his bloodstream as if years of failure all came back at once” Crushed my goal for the day! This is all that’s left in my notebook. (See my last post for details.) My favorite part of this commitment and experience has been when I create a moment of empathy for a character, and today I got to do that #writers #write #novel #novels #books #book #read #noir #handwritten #transcribe #indyhall_arts #OfTheNight #wordseveryday
