Writing has begun

I didn’t manage to hit the word count target today, let alone catch up with the days I’ve missed, but I did spend some time working on the key characters. Mainly their attributes and background history, but also some consideration of their timelines through the story. I will have to go into more detail with these in the next day or two, because it’s going to start getting complicated fairly soon and I don’t want to worry about losing my way as well as not meeting word counts or writing a boring story.

I’ve started writing the first two chapters simultaneously, mainly because they have a repeated structure. The first showing the normal routine of the main character, introduces the main players and sets the scene, whilst the second shows the start of the changes that trigger the main plot. In both cases the first scene describes the journey from rural Scotland to the centre of London that is made by the lead whilst the second relates the phone conversation between him and his wife at the end of the day. The key differences between the two chapters will serve as clues to what is happening.
