It’s not so easy to write a page of an online serial a day, particularly when I only vaguely know where it’s going. So far I’ve learnt that:
- Every page needs to have a point and move the plot forward. Page 2 originally ended on ‘Her face scrunches as she searches for the word to describe what has become my obsession. “… So perfect.”’ which did nothing and it sucked. Does it suck less now?
- I’m liking the second person.
- Third person present tense isn’t working. I’m going to switch to past tense for page 4.
- A page a day requires discipline. I think I may have to get up earlier.
