Day 79 Reporting – 2,024 Words/Day Process Log – Subconscious

I keep forgetting that my subconscious is a tool I can use. It has all the stories I’ve ever read, every play I’ve ever seen and every movie I’ve ever watched stored, just waiting for me to ask it questions.

I mention this because I didn’t believe a character had enough motivation in my current story. It was hazy and not specific at all, so I asked my subconscious for more details, and it gave it to me. Same initial goal, just more concrete.

Keep moving forward. Keep getting better.
