I probably only wrote like 1400 words in all of last week. If I don’t step up my game I’m not going to finish this book before the end of the month.
Although, I did do something really important that will help me finish. (Not necessarily finish by the end of the day September 30th.) I realized I needed a little bit more going on in the book to flesh out a proper word count. So I let that thought simmer and when I wasn’t looking the perfect idea struck me. It’s not anything I have to weave into what’s already been written, just a couple more stumbling blocks to throw at my characters before we reach the end of book 1.
One night instead of writing I ended up re-outlining the rest of book 1 so that I have a framework to build from. Which was important. Unfortunately, I kept getting sidetracked and didn’t yet make it to sitting down and writing by the time the week was over.
How are your WiPs going?
