Yeah. I did that. I didn’t enjoy it, but it had to be done.
The worst part is that it was a character that I really like a lot. But something bad had to happen to her to wrap up a plot point and move the action along. It kinda fucked me up a bit, and I’m still feeling weird about it.
This just goes to show why you should never get too attached to your characters, I suppose. :-
Also, I fully intended to have a 5,000 word day yesterday. I didn’t. I wrote about 2,100 words. Which is OK, considering I haven’t written anything at all since NaNo ended at the end of November. So it was a pretty good day considering that.
