I’ve written nine thousand words.
This amounts to pieces of about thirty different scenes.
The scenes are not in chronological order.
There are no transitions, no setting details, no setups, no conclusions.
Also no action. Just talking. Lots of talking.
But the dialogue is broken. Characters say what they mean too much.
There is no nuance to be found.
None of these sentences are going to get to stay.
They are written in two different tenses.
The tense sometimes changes more than once per phrase.
Character names change at whim, sometimes more than once per fragment.
No one could follow this story but me.
Oh first draft.
It has been too long.
I’ve missed you.
Except for how I haven’t.
Don’t worry. I’ll fix you. But you have to exist to be fixed, first.
