Well, I didn’t quite make it to 15,000 words this week, but I got close enough that I’m happy with the work I did. Even while being distracted by a shiny new idea (soooo tempting), I got some good writing done, and the Birdie WiP is now looking like an actual book! I still have a ton of scenes to write, though. So this week, my goals are:
-Write 15,000 words. Because my inner editor has been going crazy while I’ve been writing this first draft, it’s only 40,000 words long at this point. But I’ve got a lot of plot left to write, and I’m hoping to finish writing by the end of November.
-Reevaluate the plot. I like what I have mapped out so far, but I want to make sure my characters aren’t taking the plot in another direction. If they are, I need to adjust the story and the climax, because I believe in character-driven plots and staying true to my characters.
So I’m hoping to get a lot done this week! Does anyone else have any goals, writing-related or otherwise?
