FOUR DAYS IN!!
I hope that all of you are on a roll as we have reached day 4 of 30 days. We are making progress (I hope)!
I’ve been going, going, going, and based on my outline it’s going to be way over 50,000 words. Which is good, but also insane. I’m not even half way through the story, not by a long shot, and I’m around the 14,000 word mark. I’m still hoping to finish the entirety of the story by the end of December (which could be plausible). I have yet to run into a road bump in the story, which is good, though I made a slightly questionable decision for a scene that I may take out entirely when I go back and edit. For now, it’s staying in, but I’m seriously considering removing it, letting there be a bit more mystery. Or leaving it in, and changing certain parts of it to keep a bit more mystery. It’s not detrimental to the overall story, but I still haven’t decided if I want to keep it a secret for another couple of chapters or just leave it the way it is. Oh well, that’s what editing is for (partly).
Anyway, I hope that everyone is writing away, is finding their motivation and inspiration, holding on it, and making some progress. It’s not about the speed in which you write those words, but that you achieve 50,000 words by November 30th. It’s doable, and I believe in everyone who is taking on this challenge to reach that goal!
