As it stands, today is a busy day. So I stole away as much time as I could to get some writing in for the challenge.
I didn’t get as much done as I did my very first night writing. However, I did get some writing done later that day and then just now. So I had the initial 3,491, plus the 1,235 that I wrote later that day, and now to add to the total another 1,818. This gives me the grand total of 6,544! I am officially over my first 5,000 words!
What is great about these chapters I’m working on is that when I sit down, I suddenly feel like “oh I need to add this” and “I need to work this in”. My outline works well but there are so many extra details and expansion that I want to do. By this process my story is becoming longer and longer and so are the chapters. Of course it won’t be some massive book, but it will be longer than I initially wrote, which for me is a good thing!
If I get more writing done tonight and finish the chapter I started, I will update about it tomorrow after the writing for that day is done. For now though, I have to get back to other things that need to be accomplished before the day is out.
Hope everyone is doing well with the challenge!
