As I posted last week, I had been having some trouble keeping accountable with my writing, and I had stopped writing daily. I’m happy to announce that with Maggie’s help, I’ve gotten back into the rhythm.
I’m now writing 500+ words again each day, and most exciting of all is that I should be finished my WIP by Christmas! I played around with some figures, and determined that if I write 500 words every day I should have the novel written by 10 December (but this is assuming I don’t write a word over 78K, which is unlikely). So, yeah, a complete rough draft by Christmas, all ready to edit after New Year’s!
This means that I will have written my WIP in seven months – my quickest yet. It’s interesting that each novel I work on is longer than the last, word count wise, but also written quicker.
Onto my short story, HIT AND RUN, I started editing, but it’s been on hold since… well, since I started! I’m hoping to get back to it, but I have to remember that my WIP has top priority. I can edit the short story over the Christmas period.
So, for the comments: how is your writing going? Nearly finished, or just starting? Or, if you’re doing NaNo, have you finished planning yet? Let me know!
