The title says it all. After the rough challenges of getting past difficult scenes and moments I came to dread, 50,000 words now sit neatly in a document. The progress bar shows a new level of, well – progress. 35,000 words are left until the estimated end of my novel. A measly word count compared to 50,000. Together, they will merge to become the first draft of Tales of The Forbidden.
I’m ecstatic just thinking about having a completed novel!
Once finished, I won’t have much time to relax. I intend to dive right into writing the second novel of the series, Mercy of The Forbidden. After a short break, I’ll also get into the editing process of the first book. Turn this mistake-infested disaster into a real book. All this in between college and a part-time job.
I’m the type of person who tends to work better when I get pushed; when I have limited time. If one day, I have nothing planned, I’ll say, “I’ll write today.” and it will take much more effort to get myself to write. When I have a lot to do, I jump from task to task. Done with class and two hours left until I need to work? I’ll write – use the time available to me. For me, it’s the best way to do things.
Don’t be fooled. I can get a lot done on days I don’t necessarily have plans for. It’s just a matter of getting myself into gear and starting. Once I start, I don’t stop until I feel I’ve gotten enough done.
The first step is the hardest.
That step of my novel is behind me – now it’s time to finish it.
I also now have a Contact page for my blog. If you want to contact me outside of WordPress, that’s where you will find out how!
