My word count progress has vastly slowed over the last two sessions, although on the upside I’m getting a better feel for my characters, and may have some of their arcs resolved. Is this better than just pumping out words? I’m going to say yes just to raise my morale. If you don’t agree then you suck.
There was a guy at Starbucks tonight who was just sort or randomly yelped. He first yelped while standing in line, and I wasn’t sure if he was trying to yell to a friend sitting behind me or not. Later on he sat at a table in front of me facing away, and he yelped twice and both times people in front of him stopped their conversation to look at him. My friend suggested I make weird noises as well, but I don’t think it would have gone over well. Mocking people I will do, but mocking possibly mentally ill people is probably not a good idea.
