Status of current project:
Word Count thus far: 40,060
Page Count thus far: 127 pages
Goal for this week: Technically, 165 pages
(I started November 40 pages behind, and am now only 38 pages behind so actually I’m quite pleased!)
First off, to all of you who cranked out 50,000 words in November for NaNoWriMo, congrats and wow. I churned out 6500 words, and even those aren’t perfect. Got to keep at it for December. Hope to blog a bit more frequently in December, but was purposely waiting to see how much I could get done in November.
Still working on making connections in the writing world and going for the ever elusive representation. Not much news on that front, but Book 2 is shaping up regardless. The first “act” is basically done with two or three more to go. Depending on how many pages the next two acts take will determine whether the fourth act remains the fourth act of Book 2 or the first of Book 3. Still a bit up in the air. And with that, it’s one till midnight and I promised I would submit this blog before 2 December. Hope everyone is having a happy holiday season. Going for 50,000 words by New Years. We’ll see.
Lastly, I have recently made the acquaintance of Carrie Ryan, young adult author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, a post-apocalyptic tale of zombies, isolation, religious fanatacism, and love. I am in the last chapter and hope to finish it tomorrow night. Check it out if you haven’t already. It is well worth the read!
