Day Twenty-Eight (nearly there…)

Day Twenty-Eight

Nearly there… well… not exactly! It’s nearly the end of June but I’m almost 10k short of my 30k goal.
Why? It’s not so much because I had those few days away from writing completely… more that I CAN’T switch off the internal editor and I’m actually struggling to decide whether this is a bad thing or not.
Let me elaborate…I’m almost 26k into my 60k story. They h&H have done the deed but I’m not sure they should have yet. I could just plod on writing and hope that I’ll be able to fix this if it’s wrong in the rewrites, well I could… but I just can’t. I seem to NEED to have the scenes that come before the one I’m writing pretty much right before I can continue. So I’m umming and ahhing about whether to do some rewriting and insert a scene or two or to leave the book as is! It’s a nightmare!!!
Anyway enough whinging.
Word count (last two days cos I forgot to count yesterday): 1638
Fave Line of the day/s:
‘You’re not one of those women who channel Oscar The Grouch before they’ve had coffee and a shower are you?’
Word Count Thus Far: 20849

  1. I'm the same, Rach. If I have a niggle about a scene, I can't get into subsequent scenes. And it's been my experience that you should go with your instinct – if you feel it's too early then you may be right.

  2. Me too – although right now I need to fix my synopsis before I can progress any further, otherwise I will be up for major polishing later on….PS – I think you have done SOOO well re your word count – life happens after all!

  3. Do what works best for you Rach. When I'm doing sprints, I just let the scene take me where it wants to go. Eg today, I introduced a new character I didn't know existed. Congrats on your word count – it's really fantastic. And you have to think that's 20K more than you had at the beginning of the month. Yay you. BTW – I love the line of the day. 🙂
