Insecure Writer's Support Group
Last month I announced my goal of writing 70,000 words in 90 days. 60-some days down and I'm at 40,462 words. I did the math. I have to write 1230-ish words a day 6 days a week to make my goal. I'll give it my best shot. I'm dreading the end, because then I'll have to start rewriting, and that will be a chore. I know that first drafts are supposed to be bad, but as a whole this is turning out to be an unholy mess. Mostly because I keep tacking things on as an afterthought. I'm avoiding a major emotional scene, because I don't like talking about my own emotions, and writing about someone else's (albeit a fictional person) does not appeal to me.
I participated in Candilyn Fite's Follow My Lead blog fest, and I think my entry was pretty good. I didn't win, but as always everyone who entered was great. You can see the winners here.
Otherwise, I'm feeling pretty good. I hope that next month I'll be able to announce that I completed my first draft.
How are things in your world?
