Wishing I could remember when I started writing this book. I may have set my sights a bit high but I won't know until the story is completely written whether or not that is true. When I started out I believed it would take 50,000 words, give or take, to tell this story. I still think that is accurate considering how far I am and how much I have yet to write. An outline may have given me a more realistic idea of what finished would look like but I am a "pantser" so the outline is not happening.
So my mantra for the month is 500 words a day regardless of what chapter they may fall into. I really want to get to a point where I can go back and polish it until it shines.
I did finally get a pivotal scene written which was a huge relief. The final scene, or nearly final scene is another one I have been picking at, seeing it in pieces. I guess that would be a good place to go next.
I am seriously sending my internal editor on a long vacation. I cannot even get through a blog post without tweaking it at least a dozen times.
