What was 33,000 words is now 25,000.
I guess that's not too bad. No, that's not my whole novel, that's the first…now 12 chapters. Originally this far along in the story I was up to chapter 17. I discover some minor pacing issues with my chapters. I had one that was one very short scene, and another that was about six very long scenes. Great job right?
I've got just about 65,000 original words left. I'm barely 1/3 done. I thought I was way further along than this. Talk about a kick in the butt to get me moving!
I'm thinking I should play the word count game again. How much I can get through in a day. Not going to set goals, I'll just jinx myself. I'm going to keep track of how many original words I go through. I'll post said progress here. Again, not going to set a specific day, I'll just forget I'm supposed to post.
I want to get this done so I can start working on those rejections! Really I am hoping for an acceptance, but I figure having a positive spin on the whole process might be beneficial.
How is 2010 treating the rest of you so far?
