Current word count: 28,690
I did it! I met my weekend challenge. I should be honest to about it. I did all of that yesterday, which tells me I should not have a problem getting back on track this week.
My goal for this week: be at 34,000 words by Thursday August 29th at midnight.
As I was writing yesterday, I just made myself sit there and it was surprising to me that the words seemed to come easily. I would be writing along and an idea would come to mind. As I was typing, I would think, “Okay. What is going to happen next?” And my mind came up with an answer every time.
It almost felt like the story was writing itself. I didn’t think too much about it; it just fit together nicely.
Not only did I manage to get the word count that I wanted, but as I was winding down for the night, I also wrote a mini-outline of the next couple of moments I want to happen in my story.
Mostly though, I’m trying not to think about it too much. I feel like by not overthinking it, the story is coming together much better. I plan on working on it a little every night this week so I won’t be behind for my next week’s goal.
