My plan was to write 1,750 words of novel #2 three times a week (so I'd finished it by the end of July) and a short story on one other day of the week but I'm already falling behind on my word count and it's only week 1!
I managed to write 3/4 of a story the other day (haven't finished it yet) and 1,487 words of novel #2 tonight but that's it. Okay so I've still got Friday, Saturday and Sunday to go but I'm unlikely to write much more this week. Tomorrow night I'm back up to London and then I'm off to the Novel Racers meet up on Saturday and am unlikely to get home until midnight. So that just leaves Sunday...
Can I write 3,763 words in one day and finish a short story? Ummmm...NO. But it's okay. Some weeks will be busier than others. Hopefully I'll catch up next week.
Still...I've now officially written more than my previous attempt at novel #2 (the 4,500 words I decided to delete) so that's good. Really enjoyed writing the scene I wrote tonight. It was a really emotional one (the climax of Act 1) and when I next sit down to write my main character will start the 'journey' that will carry her through the rest of the novel.
