I just wanted to check in really quick and tell you guys about how my novel’s going.
Short answer: great! Long answer: a little harder than last week, but still going really well.
And what I mean by that is this: I’ve reached 30,000 words early. And I’m SO excited about that, because of the fact that it puts me about 7,000+ words ahead. But with 30k comes the question: where are the rest of these words going to come from? Do I barrel towards the end of the plot and hope that my word count follows, or do I need to build on story elements that I’ve already established and bolster my word count that way? I guess these are questions that I have to answer as these days go on and the last half of the month rolls in.
But the good news is I’ve been getting tons of good writing done this week. I’ve learned I can truly write anywhere to some extent. AND I’ve loved writing at my local library (no surprise there).
Onward to Week 3!
