Accountability for 9/21/23
Yesterday’s total words should have been better, but I got hung up on that short story I finished the night before.
I ended the day with 454 words written, on 2 stories (but barely).
I’d done a few continuity checks with the connected series that same night and found my timeline was off a bit. I started correcting it yesterday, went too far, then had to backtrack to the original story and start again.
The story was really good as it was, and I didn’t want to mess it up.
I don’t always realize it when I’m writing, but sometimes I write things that need to be shifted around once I’m done. Sometimes I’m not even sure where a part needs to be shifted to until I realize something’s missing. Once I write it, everything falls into place, as if that was how it was supposed to be all along.
All in all, I added a few hundred words to it, and that’s the majority of the words I wrote yesterday. :o
