It’s been all about NaNo these days. I’m striving to reach that daily word count of 1,667 per day which falls into my ROW 80 goal of reaching 2000 words per day. I’m a little behind but feel in a good enough place to catch up. The draft I’m working on is a sci-fi thriller/mystery which I’m getting excited about though I find myself struggling at times to fill in the gaps of my story. I’m in love with the characters though and can’t wait to see where this story leads.
Though NaNo has been consistent, the revising/editing of two of my other novel drafts has not. It’s been barely existent which makes me sad. My writing times have not been uninterrupted and the priorities of other life stuff have intruded. I’m hoping to get back on track this week with my writing schedule – sticking to those writing times like glue.
ROW80ers, how has your progress been?
I have been having those creepy little doubts about being a published author, working screenwriter, etc. etc. I’m forty-*cough* and I find myself wondering if it will ever happen to me. Especially as I read other books that are sooo good. So good. Could I ever be as good as them? Not to mention that novel writing process can be a long one, so by the time I’m done will it have been years from now before I get a book published? These are just the thoughts that have been running through my head lately. I’m making every effort to fight them and to keep at it.
So I continue…
Wishing all you ROW80ers a week of words and progress!
