I'm participating in Heather Kelly's Tour de Writing Challenge. I'm making some kick-@** progress on my WIP, a silly MG fantasy that I'm loving right now. It's amazing how 500 words a day can rack up your total.
So who really cares that I hit 14,000 words this week? Does it matter to anyone? Except maybe my agent (yes, Vickie, I AM working!) or my crit group? No, probably not.
But seriously, I've never had this many words on a project except THE SWEET SPOT (the completed YA novel). And it feels incredible!
I'm a classic procrastinator. Any reason at all to avoid getting down and dirty with the WIP, and I'm there. "Look at the pretty lights..." "Hello, Twitter." But when the words are flowing, and I'm not trying to marathon write 2000 words in an hour, I can be pretty effective. 500 words a day, give or take.
And I plan to have a 20K word rough draft by the end of the month. A very rough draft to which I'll end up adding another 15-20K words.
Tour de Writing Challenge! Huzzah!
