I wrote a 1093 words this morning. I also printed off the zombie novella, and a short story I’ve just finished. I’m getting back to doing a paper and red pen edit, which is me reading it out loud as well. When editing if you take the time to read a draft out loud you pick up on a lot that you don’t when you’re not reading aloud. Hearing what you’ve written you pick up on what sentences read smoothly, while also finding the ones that sound awkward. This is especially good for dialogue as when we’re talking it’s different to how we write descriptive elements of the story.
I’ve figured out I need to write 56498 words to hit a 100k this year. Which I can do, especially with NaNoWriMo just around the corner. I am rethinking how I’m looking at goals for the next eighteen months, but aside from the big ones I’ve not settled on what I’m going to set for myself.
Right, I’m going to leave it there. I’m dead tired and my bed is luring me in. Good night all!
