Ok, so other commitments that have been severely eating in to my writing time have finally buggered off for a bit. I have now have time to concentrate on my novel again…oh bollocks, I’ll have to think of some other excuses not to finish it now…answers on a postcard, please.
The plan is (yes, I have a plan – stop laughing) to get a first draft finished before November. If I can do this then it means I can put it a way for a while and crack on with a new idea for NaNo (of which I have many – ideas that is).
That’s not too bad; in fact it should be pretty easy…HA! Famous last words.
I’m at around the 80k mark of my novel and the way its heading at the moment I think it should finish around the 100k mark.
So 20k in four months….easy peasy – works out at about 162 words a day. I write more than that on Twitter every day, so there are no excuses not to do this (although I’m sure I’ll think of plenty).
So if you could all do me a favour and keep me suitably motivated – cheering me on, suggesting fresh story twists, threats of violence if I don’t meet the word count (the usual stuff really) – then I would very much appreciate it.
Right *cracks knuckles* I’m off to make a start on that word cou…ooh look the lawn needs mowing!
