“With the wooden floor’s first creaky footfall, Maggie knew she shouldn’t be here.”
And thus opens our story.
I’m about 2,300 words in, with two scenes under my belt, and I still haven’t introduced my antagonist yet. Eek. I’m finding coming up with an introduction scene for my antagonist to be difficult. I think the introduction of the antagonist will be brief, and probably fit in somewhere between the two scenes I’ve already written.
I’m glad I’m finally at the point where I actually start writing, and not just researching. I’ve tried to come up with some kind of outline, but was told by others that I didn’t really need one. I have a loose series of events at play in my noodle, I just have to get them down on paper and figure out the details.
Class starts Monday, so I’ll have to split my time between school work, house work and writing, but I think I’ll keep up with this. I have four “beta” readers who are helping me along, and I thank them for their contributions.
For now, I think I’ll get back to considering how to introduce my antagonist. Ta!
