An Experiment

Mine is the Night takes place over the course of ten days, and it felt a bit daunting to be forced to slow my normal pace of writing. I like to speed ahead, pulling my characters through a rip-roaring, and somewhat sweeping plot. Most of this is to do with my anxiety over not having enough words for the story–and I usually end up going way over the projected word count–so this novel is a definite challenge! My well-thumbed copy of Judith Ivory’s The Indiscretion is going to be a road map as I suss out how to keep the pacing and emotion at a slow, but believable speed.
