This month started off with me wrapping up the final few words of the fan fiction piece I’ve been playing with for the last couple of years before I moved on to a story I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’ve had it relatively well outlined but I’ve found I’ve deviated from that outline but not like I have done in the past, and it’s adding to the larger plot of what I hope will be a trilogy when it’s done. I’m now back on track with the outline now.
Numbers wise, I’ve written 12,335 words for the month. That’s an average of 397 words a day. I only had five days where I didn’t write.
For the year I’ve written 83,116 words so far. That’s about 10,000 a month and well below my target of 20,000 words a month. I’ve not hit the 20k a month yet this year. One of my goals for the rest of the year is to hit that 20k a month.
Writing with pen and paper is a slower way to write for me but I like how I write when I write longhand.
I’m happy with how August has ended. It’s been a good month and I’m enjoying the story I’m working on now. Bring on tomorrow and more words.
