I've been participating in a writing marathon over at Compuserve's Books & Writers forum, in an effort to boost progress on the novel. I've put in 3500 words so far. Not bad. But, I've discovered that I'm going to have to revisit some of what I wrote. I missed finding the motivations and purposes of the scenes. Plus, I think I've written in a cliche character. I hate it when I do that. Now I have to rework him so he's interesting, fresh and not boring. I hate boring.
