Those of you who don’t like NaNoWriMo will probably get sick of seeing posts all over the internet for days and weeks on end reporting on people progress. I will apologise for my share in that right now, but it can’t be helped because it’s a major part of my life at the moment. 😀
Procrastination bit me a bit today and that annoyed me enough to make me get stuck into the words. In other words, it backfired and got me writing…so I’m not complaining. The words started out slowly, but then I came to the end of a scene and the next scene was from a different character’s point of view, which allowed the words to tumble out. It was great. I was surprised to see that I wrote almost 1,000 words in less than an hour.
Yesterday, I stopped writing right in the middle of a scene. Today, I finished at the end of a scene. I prefer stopping in the action because it’s easier to pick up the flow and start writing. Having to start a new scene is like having to start a new story…the first words just refuse to be written. I hope that doesn’t cause a problem for me tomorrow.
It’s the end of the week and to date I’m well over the word count required to stay on track. I’m planning to build a lovely cushioned buffer over the weekend so that I don’t have far to fall next week when things might start getting tough. It always pays to be prepared.
I would like to write a post a day, on this blog, in order to keep a record of my daily word count, but I’m not sure if that will be possible. If, for whatever reason, I can’t post I will always update the graph for Mirror Image that can be found by clicking on Work in Progress in the navigation bar above [sorry, the page no longer exists]. Just scroll down the page as the graph is near the bottom.
Now I’m off to relax for a while before going to bed. I do feel tired tonight.
