Kinda like tonight, for instance. I’m working on the scene I started last night, which features the unsane aliens. It’s not hard to describe the actions. But getting my head in a place where I can sort of understand the motivations of the aliens is a strain. And then trying to figure out what to put on the page so that the reader has some idea of what’s really happening in the mind of something that has a lot more in common with a praying mantis than with us just adds to the tension of creating the scene.
I’m weary. But I did get 580 words done in a short writing session tonight. Almost done with the scene.
Rolling total now = 85,647.
