Advancing on 40k ... will I succeed in filling up the rest of 10k words with narrative and descriptions? I bloody hope so.

I have come to realize yet again what an amazing job professional writers do. It is not only the dialogues or the characters but the narrative and the descriptions of the world they are creating. It is always easy writing fan fiction because you have already established characters, a set world where you can pick up the characters and play with them to your heart's desire. No need of explanations of why, how, when. No need to establish a world, its physics, its history.
But if you create a setting from the ground up, fill it with characters, with life, it is so infinitely more difficult. I have a huge respect for that.

I'm also amazed by professional writers, particularly good ones! AHAH! There's also they way they find their own narrative voice, which differs from novel to novel. How DO they do it? Obviously it's a gift!

Talent, gift, you name it ... I'm always in awe myself. :)
