Funny how a plan can change. The mission for this year’s novel writing month was just to finish the draft. This year, the novel and life had different plans for me.
When I started writing, I had a written direction to go in. But like with so many arts, I had to use the eraser. And I also had to draw new lines, and move existing pieces I’d scrawled down in Scrivener to different parts.
Which this usually how writing goes for me nowadays. I used to pump out line after line of prose without really paying any attention to quality. I usually think about what to write before putting it down. Thus my speed is quite slow.
According to my stats this year, I wrote 505 words a day. Obviously not 1,667 words a day, but it’s not a loss. At the end of it all, I wrote something… And I’m making progress on Wrath of the King.
Trust me, there will be a whole lot of wrath! There’ll be quite a bit more action and craziness. And that is all the spoilers I’ll give for now. 😉
In the meantime, time to write !
