I started writing again today, finally. I’m at 1,064 for the day so far and intend to finish later tonight with significantly more words than that as long as I continue to feel well enough.
Here’s the thing. I wrote most of those words on the wrong damn book. :D Since it is a book I plan to write in 2015, I’m not going to complain too much. The original opening I’ve already written for that book never felt right for this one, but what I came up with today? I really like it. :) And I think I can tie it in with the rest of the books in the series nicely, even though as of yet it doesn’t seem to have anyone in common with the other books.
And that brings me back to the book I need to write ASAP. It’s going okay, although I stepped back from the last scene I’d written enough so that I could take it in a different direction. I think it’s going to work better this way too. I gained about 235 words on it, although by the time I’m done, I’ll have to delete those words I didn’t chop off the end of the scene yet. When I do, I’ll probably lose about 500 words. If it keeps things moving in the right direction, I don’t care. I delete words all the time. I’ve gotten used to it. :D
And that’s my update for the moment. I’ve very, very far behind on my 2,000 words a day plan, but I think for now, I’m just going concentrate on averaging that 2,000 words a day for the next week or two, instead of trying to play catch up. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to have the writing of a few books go really easy for me and the catching up will come on its own. That’d be a nice change!
