NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 40/Day 24

Advice: Write any way” and I think that’s a key part of writing – sometimes the words will flow easily and other times each single syllable will be a struggle to get out, but whether it’s one word or a thousand it all counts. Whatever kind of day I’ve had I try to let that go and focus on my book universe, and write any way, anyway – and I always feel better for it. Also write for yourself no-one else. that’s enough. You don’t have to scry over hooks and trends and chase the “zeitgeist” just write what you need to, because you need to – that’ll help whatever you’re working on to stay true to your vision.”

Prompt: Psych 101. Put your main character on the therapist’s couch. What’s bugging him? What deep-seated issue hasn’t he dealt with? What does he talk about with his counselor that he’d never reveal to another character? What would happen if another character discovered this deep, dark secret? Write a scene about that very discovery. Does your character try to deny it? Freak out? Break down in tears? Shrug it off? Kill or blackmail the person who made the discovery so no one else finds out? Are the other characters supportive, afraid, judgmental? Who leaves, and who sticks around?

HOW TO USE CHAEBOL IN A SENTENCE
Prosecutors argued that the length of the sentence is warranted because of Samsung’s power as the largest chaebol, or family-owned conglomerate, in South Korea.
