Day 11 :
Day 12 :
Made some decent progress… cranked out a little over 1,000 words, and broke the 8,000 word mark. I had been hoping to break 10k by the end of the weekend, but… well… that didn’t happen.
Meeting the goal of 50,000 words by November 30 is looking less and less likely as time goes by. At this point I need to crank out about 2,300 words a day to meet target… and I’m not sure I have the time to pull it off.
On the plus side, I’m still feeling the story, and making forward progress. I’ll consider it a victory if I manage to keep my momentum going for the thirty days (and perhaps beyond). That motivation is what I’ve been lacking… and I hope to carry this momentum forward into other projects in the future (say, finishing a certain adventure I’ve had in the early stages for a couple of years… or writing that other novel I’ve had stalled for the past six years or so).
And who knows… I may find myself with a load of time and motivation to churn out two or three thousand words a day between now and two weeks from Thursday.
If you haven’t seen the latest posts to The Stars of Lochost, go on over and check them out. And please, leave comments or feedback. It’s one of the things that’s keeping me going.
Until next time…
