The Pressure of the Time Crunch

The pressure of trying to write as much as I can in a half an hour over my lunch seems to be working for me. When I’ve tried to write with more time on my hands recently the words just aren’t there. So I’m going to continue to write in short bursts, like a mad race to get as much down onto paper as I can in 30 minute intervals. We’ll see what happens. So far I’m up over the 4K mark. I don’t have high hopes that I’ll me the NaNoWriMo challenge, but at least I’m writing and it feels good!

Last night I got a bit more insight into my hero, Jake Tucker, when I wrote the first scene in his POV. Here’s an short excerpt:

Jake jumped to his feet and swung toward the Specter. He used his momentum to propel both of them toward the wall, toward the portal. He rode that dark wave down to Hell and he’d keep going until they were all gone. There would be more after Catherine and now Sullivan too. He hoped he could stop them all.

I hope it gave you the shivers too.
