I reached the half way point yesterday after a few days or furious writing. Some of it the ‘bang your head against the wall’ writing but, for the most part, it flowed along. I started last Monday with 20,000 words and finished last night with just over 50,000. And, that was taking two plays days so I am extremely pleased with both the progress and story.
I really enjoy writing because the story is created right before me. Sure I have a story line and a general direction, but when I get into that trance of hammering away on the keys, the story just takes off on its own to some degree. I just let the action and event happen right before me and sometimes it’s just as new to me as to you first reading it. I have the start and end result in mind and then let the story take shape between those two points. Living the moment of the book. It is a living entity to me.
I will be at it again today but perhaps not as furious as in previous days, but, you never know. I am on pace to finish my goal of having the rough draft completed by the end of the month, hopefully releasing it by the middle of September.
I with everyone a great day and hope it’s an enjoyable one for you!
