A few hours late, but I did manage to get to my weekly quota on pacing to have over 60K words by the end of the month. I think the reason I think I am doing so poorly this year is because I am writing very deliberately. This is new for me. I'm not just writing amuck this time. I'm thinking through scenes and my chapters. I have finished Chapter Two...there were a few parts that I wanted to beef up or add a tad of flashback to add a bit more backstory. Look at me...putting some thought behind what I am writing. It feels good. I am happy.
It is a bit slower going...but my word count at this point isn't suffering. The only tough parts are when I am too tired to write at night after work. Hopefully next week I will do better. But in the meantime, I have the weekend to really rack up some numbers. Here is hoping that I can get to 20K before the end of the weekend. Hope Hope!!!
