I wanted to write 2000 words tonight, and I wrote 2042. Which I’m happy about. It felt like I was back to where I was a few weeks ago and it put me 2000 words ahead of where I should be. At just over 29,000 words I’m less then a 1000 words from my 30,000 word target for the month. So if I keep this momentum that I’ve carried over from NaNoWriMo then I’ll have this draft done by the end of January, which is the time target I’d set myself. Why the end of January? Because come the 1st of February Owen and I want to start writing the Project Apollo re-write, but the outline isn’t done yet so that may not happen on that day. I don’t want to stop writing though, so what I’m going to do is start working on the outline for a story that I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’m only going to set a word count of 30,000 words for this novel so I can knock it out in about a month if need be.
So basically the early part of next year will be me plotting stories, writing other stories and editing others. Don’t ask me how I’m going to time manage all of this but I’m looking forward to finding out. This next year is going to be an interesting one, but hopefully a productive one also.
Tomorrow I’ll be aiming for another 2000 word day as well as start looking at plotting out the 30,000 word novella I mentioned.
