We can thank National Novel Writing month for the uptick in chapters. I also went on a little reading binge this weekend. Felt gooooooood to get some titles under my belt. I now have 5 books to read before I hit my goal of 75 books for the year. I’ll likely exceed that because I agreed to read a metric CRAPTON of books for Harlequin and after writing 50,000+ words in Novemeber, I know that I will not want to look at Microsoft Word in any way and I will bury myself in books.
If you want to know what I read/am reading the easiest thing is to check me out at GoodReads. I think you have to be a member to see my profile. NO LOOKYLOOS!
As far as NANO goes:
Really good week! I am into Act II, I think. I don’t know, I keep trying to plan and hit road blocks and then decide to JUST WRITE and see where it goes, and then compare it to my story arc and see where I am and then freak out because I am just TYPING and not going anywhere but that doesn’t matter because I can fix it in revision.
Right? I heard that that was what I could do. So yes.
I made it over the 25K hump this weekend so that is good. “Winning” for Nano is 50,000 words, done or not. I will hit that with no problem. Writing to DONE is the problem and won’t happen in Nov. This book will be at least 100K words when I finish and then I’ll cut it back. There are three central characters, which makes the story longer. I tried cutting them down, it doesn’t work, so I’m going to JUST WRITE and see where it takes me.
More writing tonight after gyming!
