So, the madness has commenced. I have over 3000 words already. Taking a bit of a break while I regroup. Something new popped in as I wrote so the outline has already seen a deviation. But it seems it might be an interesting twist. We'll see as we progress.
Writing while not editing is a challenge. I have done minor edits. There are a lot of names I need to come up with, though, as well as fleshing out that little twist that happened - in the first chapter, no less. But that's the joy of writing for me. I have a plan but then I also have characters and they sometimes have their own plan. Gotta go with the flow sometimes.
I'm hoping to end the day with 5000 words having been written. Want to make a nice dent in that 50,000 word goal within the first two weeks so that if there is a lag in the second half of the month, I'm still on track.
That's the plan, anyway. I'll keep updating every week with my word count. If I can keep it up, I may even see 75,000 words at the end of the month. What I'm working on was supposed to be just a novella but with the new twist, it may well be a full size novel before I'm through with it. We'll see what happens.
