Went to bed last night feeling like I had accomplished nothing this week. It’s just been a draining week all around.
DMing tonight. I actually have a idea of what I’m going to do, but it will take some work. I need to stay on task.
The other goal I had for today was to hit 7000 words for the week. That means I need 1600 for today. That will be rough considering I’m pretty much at the end of a chapter and haven’t given a lot of thought to what’s coming next. I know I’m going to need a bit of a scene as Neltiar and Marie head back to Havenstone. Neltiar needs to ‘fess up about manipulating people. Marie needs to reflect on what’s going on. And payment needs to be made. Does Neltiar know what the symbol is? No, it’s going to take him some time to figure it out. He’ll need to go back to Lyon. Neltiar needs to convince Lord Henry to stay put for a while. No problem, he’ll claim that he and his friend will have scouted. Also need to explain why they didn’t use the cloaks. I’m thinking the orcs have a bit of infrared sense, the cloaks wouldn’t have done much good. Gotta make sure I don’t flub that during the scouting portion.
Heh, sorry. Gotta a little carried away with the writing notes. And people who peruse my journal are saying to themselves, “What the hell is she talking about!?!”
The phase of the day is: Keep on Task.
Now for a shower…
