Not Stuck On The Trine Anymore

Written by Kodi Wolf at 10:05 PM

I'm happy to report that I'm no longer stuck on the fight scene for The Trine. I not only finished that scene, but I also finished the following scene and am geared up to write the next one after that, so I'm quite pleased with myself. :)

I'm also quite pleased with what I came up with. The fight scene flows the way I wanted it to, giving just enough detail to get the visuals across without necessarily sounding like a step-by-step training manual on the subject (at least I hope not; my wife seemed to like it anyway). And the following scene has all the emotional impact I was going for, which I was a little worried about, but it made Corene cry, so I think it's good. She's my test when I'm trying to create a really happy or really sad scene. If she tears up, then I know I've done my job and had an emotional impact. So I'm on a bit of a high, being all impressed with myself for getting all that written in a single day, especially after struggling with it so much over the past month. In fact, being that it's my birthday today (I'm 34 now), I think getting those scenes under my belt turned out to be a pretty good birthday present to myself.

I also realized after my last post that this is the kind of stuff I want to be posting about and it's actually what I'd originally intended. I mean, yeah, I expected to write about personal stuff happening in my life, but mostly I wanted this to be a space for me to talk about what I'm working on, what I'm struggling with or trying to figure out, and what I've learned in the process.

Of course, I think the problem with that has been that I've just been doing snippets here and there, and that's not really conducive to any kind of constructive discussion. There's only so many times I can depress myself (and probably my readers) by writing about how I'm not writing as much as I want to, before I (and probably my readers) tune out.

But I really enjoyed talking about what I was stuck on and working through it enough that I was able to get the scene written the next day (well, I enjoyed the end result; the struggling, not so much). But I know that only works if I actually have something solid I'm working on, as opposed to notes and such.

So here's hoping this little trend continues. I like being able to report good news for a change. :)
