|10-Oct-09 10:44pm||2,810||I'm (sort of) finished! I reached the end (and it's just soooo tenderhearted) (which probably means I need to cut it, LOL), but I don't really feel "finished" until I go back and fix all the things I meant to all along. Like weaving two new POV characters who appeared in the middle of the book. And making the setting a character in the story.
But still, I'm pumped!
|7-Oct-09 10:43pm||1,700||Just about to catch him!||63,000|
|6-Oct-09 10:27pm||4,200||Second plot point like WHOA. (srsly, can I get a what what?)||61,300|
|5-Oct-09 10:48pm||1,100||Also wrote a short synopsis for another MS and got sucked into reading about 40 pgs from another old MS of mine. And read through two chaps from a CP. AND I played with my kids a bunch.||57,100|
|1-Oct-09 10:21pm||700||Sigh. Slow night--went to a local storytelling club for some fun imagery exercises, though. That's writerly, right?||52,100|
|30-Sep-09 11:02pm||1,200||Someone. Just. Died.||51,400|
|29-Sep-09 10:25pm||2,000||Someone's about to die!! Woohoo!
Also came up with a new story idea today. Juggling that one versus the other one I was going to work on next. Also thinking about decreasing my goal. Am I about 2/3s of the way through my story? I hope I'm not too much further--but I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the next 25k words. Oy.
On the other hand, I just got 5k words out of 15 minutes of storytime (4 different concurrent storylines).
Gah. We'll just see.
|28-Sep-09 10:58pm||2,800||Actually slightly more than this; I cut some of my notes into another doc. This is net gain.||48,200|
|23-Sep-09 10:47pm||1,600||The Midpoint! Woohoo! And also, dramatic fruit. Now on to the attack. ATTAAAACK!||40,100|
|21-Sep-09 10:57pm||900||Also finished another round of revisions.||36,000|
|16-Sep-09 11:13pm||1,400||Hit the first pinch point! (Don't know what that is? We'll get to that in our series on plotting!)||30,600|
|5-Sep-09 8:27pm||2,700||Hit the first plot point! Woot!||22,700|
