  • Mood:
Between yesterday and today, up to 3000 words and change on In Memory Of. Mostly today, because yesterday I was dead. (For July, Tuesdays and Fridays I'm out of the apartment from 8am to 8pm, 'cause the break in between my shifts doesn't make it worth coming all the way home.) Part way into chapter three. Haven't hit any parts that really felt awkward yet. You know those parts when you know you've got to write it to get to the rest of the story, but no matter how you try, it just comes out feeling off? I think I might be getting a bit more sensitive to when those parts are starting, and working them out before they get really off (like... here's a good spot for a chapter break!), but maybe I've just been lucky.

My usual goal with a novel is to get at least 1000 words a day. I think for now I'll have to aim for that as an average, and write like hell on my days off. ;)

Sometime this week have to rewrite my fantasy story so I can send it to the anthology. Got lots of helpful crits from the group today, but everyone seemed to agree that this is just a damn hard story to write properly. So I will just give it my best shot. *takes a deep breath* Well, not quite yet. Gotta wait 'til I'm fresh and I've got enough time to do the whole (1250 word) thing at once. It's going to need that.
