I didn't get as much done tonight on The Seventh Sense as I'd hoped. The good news there is that I can put off more plotting for another day or two. And it's not like I've come to a standstill. I'm still plugging away at it. The story is in first person, and I've reached a point where I'm not sure how I feel about that. Luke's point of view is lost this way, although I'm trying to show readers who he is through his actions and words.
I'm also a quarter-way through the story and they haven't kissed yet. It feels right for this story--they've seen each other twice, so it doesn't seem appropriate to have them kiss at this point. In addition, I shouldn't compare it to a Tryst-length story, which involves fewer words and therefore offers less time to develop the story. Also (don't hold me to this), this story may end up being closer to 40,000 than 30,000 words, and that gives me even more room to work with.
At the moment, I have one or two ideas about increasing the sexual tension, and I hope more ideas will follow.
I spent a lot of time tonight revising two pages of In Her Eyes. Yes, I did say two pages. I wrote this story for National Novel Writing Month last year, and so I (a) was writing quickly, and (b) have learned a lot about writing since then. I don't think I'll have any problem expanding it to 90,000 words.
