So, April is nearly half over and I’m just over a quarter of the way to my word count goal.
So, am I going to do something rational like adjust my goal?
Of course not!
In order to finish on time I only need to write about 2000 words a day. I can do that.
Well, okay, maybe I can’t do that on work days but I’m doing pretty good at getting about a thousand in on work days, so if I can do three to five thousand on my days off…
Yeah, it’s still doable!
Granted, I’d feel more confident if I had a detailed outline to work from, but I can still do it. I’m not sure that both novels will be finished, but I will hit 50k. And if the words are all for book one of the trilogy, that’s okay. It’s really too short as it is and could use another 50,000 words. (That might make it too long, but I am pretty sure that I’ve been repeating myself a lot lately, so it’ll be easy to shave some stuff off when it’s time to edit.)
I’m also spending a lot of time with a minor character who has become more important than intended. (He’s the second character in this trilogy to do that.)
Anyhow, my two days off this week are pretty packed, especially Wednesday, but I’m going to try hit 25k by Friday.
If I can stay awake…
