It’s true, it’s only day sixteen and I’ve already written a third of the manuscript.
Chapter 5 turned out to be difficult to write but I took it slowly and gave myself plenty of time to “think”. As you know, I’m a planner. As far as I’m concerned, planning is essential but that doesn’t mean the plot is set in stone. No, certainly not. In chapter 5 even I have had a surprise. There’s a small turn of events that I wasn’t expecting but fits in well with the plot and the characters and I’m going with it. So…anyone who tells you that planning takes creativity away, doesn’t know what they are talking about.
Chapter 5 is complete and the word count so far is 10,148. At this rate, I’ll be finished the entire manuscript by the end of October! 🙂
