Hello, friends!  Another week gone.  And now we’re in October.  (Seriously, I think that some paranormal being sneaks into my life and steals days from my years.  How is it already this close to the end of the year?)

I got much writing done this week, friends.  Mirror, Mirror is coming along nicely.  I’m fairly certain at this point that I’m going to have to brainstorm more rug-pulling events for my characters to build out my word count.

But that is where beta readers will come in handy.  Because they’ll be able to tell me where they want more information/details/etcetera and I can use that to round out my word count.

I love writing longhand, though, because it forces me to focus on the story and not word count.  I’m telling the story as I see it in my head and not trying to throw in needless information just to reach a certain arbitrarily chosen number.

I’m aiming to finish this by mid-October as I’ve pretty much committed to participating in NaNoWriMo this year.  Keep your fingers crossed that life doesn’t blow up in my face, as it is wont to do, preventing me from accomplishing said goal.

How are your WiPs going?
