Well, here it is, Friday again, and I feel like I’m falling even further behind, probably because I am. I did get a burst of words in late yesterday, though, which gives me hope that this is still doable, even though I have to write 2354 words per day in order to finish on time and I’m lucky to get a thousand in on work days.
I have gone from stilted and probably repeating myself and through focusing on a minor character’s back story, to probably being too preachy, but, hey, that’s all stuff to worry about when it’s time to edit this mess.
I may also have to retcon and rewrite a few parts, but… Yep! You got it! That’s something to worry about in the first round edit.
Right now I have enough to worry about with the word count, but on a brighter note I’m discovering that sitting down and making myself write seems to be pushing the blocked feeling away — the more I write the better the words flow.
I’m working the next three days, so most likely won’t get more than another 3k written over the weekend. I’m off on Monday, though, and have no plans to go anywhere, so maybe, just maybe, I can make some inroads on my word deficit.
Besides, I’m just too stubborn to give up.
