On Monday I started my new project with a very simple goal in mind. Write three chapters per week. At that pace, I’d have the first draft finished in three months – four if anything happens to interfere. And that’s my goal.
In this first week, I wrote chapters 1 through 3 and therefore successfully reached the goal I’d set for myself. Having a good start is really motivating for me; it makes me want to continue and I feel like this project will keep running smoothly.
I know there will be times when I’m less motivated, but I’ll push my way through them. Nothing will stand in the way of me and my four-month deadline.
So far, I’m really pleased with the story’s progress and that has me in a good mood. So, enjoy this short excerpt from chapter three!
“Talking to yourself, hmm?”
Avalyn whirled around, coming face-to-face with the foreign noble.
“You do realize most people would question your sanity… correct?” Kieran stepped out of the doorway, sauntering towards her.
“But you don’t?” Her momentary peace dispersed and her muscles clamped up. He made her uneasy and that discomfort made her drop her polite façade. “Tell me, what does that make you then?”
That’s all for this post! Here’s hoping week #2 goes just as well as week #1!
How was your weekend?
Now I’m going to barricade myself in my room and play more The World Ends With You. Just bought it this week and I’m having fun with it!
