Old habits die hard.
It’s 10:30pm during NaNoWriMo and I’m working on my project. I save (backup) and quit, realizing this is Camp NaNo, and I can relax. My word count is less than one thousand words a day. I’m a little behind, but I’ll make my deadline.
This got me thinking that I should do a preorder for the fourth book. No cover. Just set a date. That will give me a definite deadline. After examining the outline, I decided this is a terrible idea.
The other novellas in the Faerie Tales Series were all about twenty thousand words, but I can’t fit all that’s going to happen in this story in that small of a framework. I think I’m looking at a full-length novel for the last book of the series. That’s going to take more than 20k, but we’ll see. A lot happens in the development of a story between outlining, drafting, and editing.
Today’s word count total: 3081
Hope you’re all doing well. Happy writing.
