Library Paste

Another few hundred words. It doesn’t sound like a lot but as of now I’m over the 50,000 words mark. When I think back to how long it took me to grind through the 30-40k part (about the entire of last winter it seems) then I’m really happy that I’ve gone through 40-50 in the last couple of months. I’m about 5000 words away from wrapping up a first draft.

The chapter I’m currently on is suffering a bit from being a written story that was once going to be a film. There’s quite a lot going on visually and I feel I’m maybe skimming over  character’s reactions and thought processes.

But this is what rewrites are for!

  1. Can’t believe how much writing you’ve got done. I have to admit that I’m a bit jealous. I have zero time or opportunity! The best I can do is scribble down new ideas when they come in preparation for that moment when I will actually get to focus on writing.

    1. Thank you. It does feel like it’s taken me an age to even get this far though and even then some parts read really rough.
      It’s been a case of just chipping away at it gradually. Even if it’s just been one hundred words in an evening or so.
