Today, I finally finished the chapter I wanted to write for my NiP which was a very difficult chapter.
It’s the scene where two of my main characters, after months and months apart, finally reunite. They both started off two innocent kids with dreams of love and joy and all that sort of stuff, but then they went different directions and experienced all sorts of nasty things that changed them forever, pretty much scarred them for life.
The reunion scene has been playing in my head over and over and over, but everytime I tried to write it, it just felt… wrong. Since the many chapters before this one everything is bleak and dark and full of pain, I really wanted the reunion scene to be playful and happy, despite the fact that they both know — the world will end tomorrow (unless I decide to spare them muahahaha).
I discovered I am better at writing painful scenes than happy ones. I am such a masochistic fool…
But anyway, I finally got something written that I really feel good about! So I am very happy 🙂
I can’t wait to share the chapter with my FWO friends; but it’s going to be a while yet as I have only posted up to Chapter 20 there.
Now, the hard part is to write the end of the world scene… argh. But that’s another day’s problem.
Good night all! zzzz….
