NaNo Day Seventeen

Ack! It was a low word count day. I just didn't feel like writing. That said, I must write every day or I lose momentum on the story. I managed to eke out a scene before calling it quits for the night. I'm at 41,827 words. 8,173 to go for a win. Lord knows how many to go to flesh out the story; but it is, thankfully, more than 8,173.

Maybe panegyrics, as much as John feels he's entitled to them, make for lousy tension raisers.

You seem to write most exuberant when things go awry, when the plot has fangs that could actually harm the protagonists.

Don't spare the rod.
You'll spoil the lord.

(Not that he isn't spoiled already.)

You do know he likes being whipped in the dungeon by his private mistress, don't you?

(*cough* There actually are pictures and films of that. Let me know if you feel that would inspire you *cough*)
There may be short panegyrics at funerals and coronations; but definitely not the extended ones his Lordship would like. They just drain the momentum from novels.

I have added "that" to my wish list. If you are interested in showing his Lordship something a little more comedic, he might enjoy this.

Yes, I find writing much more invigorating when I can inflict pain on the characters. I guess I'm a literary sadist. It makes for more interesting reading too. I may have to throw in a gratuitous BDSM scene (or several) with his mistress. They are just about to meet face to face for the first time in the novel. This could be a steamy writing session. ;-)
