My current word count is sitting at 27,118. I went through just over half the month without letting my word count dip below the line, but it has finally happened.
I can’t say I’m all that surprised. I knew the wall I hit in week two wasn’t “The Big One.”
Week three is hard. The newness of my novel has worn off. I’ve begun to realize that this is going to need lots of reworking when it’s done. I still don’t even know what’s going to happen next, or how the novel will even end!
I’m rereading all of my own blog posts this morning to motivate myself. I’m not necessarily that far behind. I’ve had two or three days this month where I’ve written enough that would catch me up right now. I know I can do it.
reason excuse for not writing these past couple days is that we got a new Playstation 4 and I’ll tell you that thing is distracting! We got the Darth Vader PS4 with Star Wars: Battlefront and even though I know nothing about Star Wars, the game in itself is pretty fun. (A rip off too though, but that’s a whole other unrelated blog post.) Even when I’m not playing it, I get enamored when Brad is. I just may need to start taking my laptop in the bedroom or something. Make playing the PS4 a reward for writing first.
I’m not worried yet. I still have plenty of time. I want to win, dangit!
