What a roller coaster.  This light at the end of the tunnel wasn’t an oncoming train!

Light at the End of the Tunnel, Kawatiri Tunnel, Feb 2011

I have 1600 odd words to write today in order to finish the story, and I am up to the penultimate part of my story, and Kelvaras has just seen Vyvica get blown up.  Or did he?

I have gone back and injected some more action into the story, and I am happy with that, but I still need more.  When I rewrite, I hope to add another 25k to really give it the buzz that it needs – although I am very happy with it as it is.

It is my first time writing a Science Fiction story, and I have been conscious of what to call things.  I didn’t want cellphones or computers, but needed that type of technology, without getting technical and confusing.  I am happy with what I came up with, and I think that they are well named, no one will think – what does that device do?

I don’t really want to do too much of a breakdown, because I want to do another post in the next couple of days just doing a recount and a debrief of my writing month, so I think I will end it there.

Hopefully I feel well enough today to get this finished and complete my goal – complete SoCNoC!

    I’m so excited to read your debrief. It sounds like you’ve had a blast writing your first science fiction story. Funnily enough the next story idea that’s been bugging me is a time travel idea I had ages ago. Apparently never say never to science fiction. 🙂

      Never pin yourself down to one genre, because you just never know what ideas will pop out at you! 😀
