I finally had a 20,000 word week after a long summer of low word counts. I’m happy; I’m tired; I need to write more than 20k next week.
It should be an interesting week to say the least. My next novel under my pen name should already be done, and I don’t think I’m even half-way there yet. My first episode on my other blog is about to finish up, which means I will be out of pre-scheduled posts by Friday next week. I have yet to start episode two.
I need to make some choices. Pause the novel and do some more for the serial, or keep writing go, go, go on the novel. If I get 3000 words done on the serial, that’ll keep me for a week, but that is precious time away from the novel. Usually I don’t write two stories at once. I go until I hit the end or decide to put it away for a long time. Right now I’m often finding myself inserting the wrong hero’s name into my romance because I hit the pause on the serial to resume the novel. First world problems.
I’m optimistic though. I don’t anticipate a huge rewrite on the novel. There’s one area that’s not tense enough for my liking, but I don’t think changing it will change the rest of the book. I haven’t heard from Julie though, so we’ll see.
How did you guys do this week? I hope it was a good one!
