Just a quick update today. I wasn’t feeling very good this evening and had a major headache about 6:00 or so. I took some Tylenol and tried to take a nap to sleep it off. Didn’t work.
I actually considered not writing at all tonight because I just wasn’t feeling well. But, finally about 9:00 or so, I started feeling better and by 10 it was gone. So, I sat down at my computer and forced myself to write even though i wanted to go to bed. I’ve never been under such a tight goal or deadline before with my writing. This has actually been a really good experience for me.
Anyway, I was already having a hard time from the night before because I was coming into a scene that I wasn’t sure how to write, and I was dreading it. But, when I sat down, it just started flowing. Before I knew it I had written through the part I thought would be hard and had gone much, much further. A new piece of information revealed itself that I wasn’t expecting in the story which was fun. By the time I was done I had written 4383 words. I would have kept going but I have to be up early tomorrow. So, I found a breaking point and stopped. Tomorrow brings a really cool action/magic scene that I’ve been looking forward to for several days now. Should make for some fun, but challenging writing.
Even with a meager 738 days on day one, I’ve now raised my 6 day average to 2588 words. As long as I stay above 2500, I’ll make my 75,000 word goal. AMAZING!!!
