Sunday today – time to let you all know how is going in my attempt to write every day.
Not so bad – well, yesterday was bad – 455 words of absolute rubbish, forced out with gritted teeth! But at least I sat there and wrote something.
So, the figures: 14th January, my WIP was 19,326 words. Yesterday, including the rubbish, 24,175.
Total words written 4,849.
Oh dear, seems I’m only doing five days work – and leaving early on Friday!
However. Thursday was writing class, and there was an interesting exercise.
After the class, I went home and wrote over 2,000 words (edited to 1,882). It won’t be part of the book, but it is back story. It has told me something I didn’t already know about the character. It may come up later.
Back to the figures. 4,849 plus 1,882 equals 6,731.
Plus 474 (remember my last post?)
Equals – big drum roll – 7,205.
I’m on schedule!
Come back next week to see how I get on.
