Alrighty! I’ve had a couple of days to think on my dilemma, and I’ve made my decision.
The good news is, I’ve breached 40,000 words!
Last week, I breached 20,000 words. This week, I smashed through 30,000, and I’m well over half-way to my 70,000 word goal!
Not only am I thrilled to have breached 20,000 words, but the pre-first draft of the first act is done!
So last week, I finished the super-rough outline and started working scene-by-scene to add detail and do whatever planning I’d need to make the first draft faster to write when I get to it.
Hey, I’m almost feeling better!
So, remember when I said I was sick last week?
Let’s not beat around it; I should’ve gained a few thousand words, but I’ve gone and lost nearly 700 since last week instead.
Lots of thinking, and not much writing.
Now that was a productive weekend!
A few years ago, I started working on my first novel.
