Okay I missed Wednesday’s check-in so apologies for that; it’s hard for me to work out how many words I’ve done because I’m doing the first draft by hand but I’ve worked out I do about three hundred words to a page so I’ve done about seven pages this week which works out at about two thousand words. If I do my 500 words a day then it should be 3,500 words so I fell short a bit but at least I made progress. I would like to do 1,000 a day so I’d be hitting 7,000 a week but there you go. Struggled a bit this week with character viewpoint; have reached a really crucial scene where an attempted murder takes place and can’t quite decide whether to write it from the point of view of the victim or the attacker; might try re-writing it from the other point of view just to see what it looks like.
Did manage my two blog posts a week, might see if I can up that to three a week next week. If it doesn’t work I can always scale it back.
So targets for next week are 1) three blogs posts and 2) 4,000 words of novel Emily Swann plus re-write from different point of view of attempted murder scene. Now I written it down I’ll feel guilty if I have to explain to you all that I couldn’t be bothered to shift my lazy a**e!
