So, the new total at the start of this week is 20,848, which is the size of a small novella! That means that I wrote 6,339 words, a step up from last week. It's nowhere near what I wrote the first week, but I knew that going in.
I do not believe that I will meet the 50,000 word goal this year. Too many different things have come together to prevent me from climbing this particular mountain. But that's okay! I'm almost halfway, and I've completed a big cut into my first original novel. There's always next year, and tomorrow is another day!
Rest assured, I intend to continue working on this story. Right up until the time it's actually complete.
But enough about tomorrow, how's about today? I was super excited to reach the point of the first major plot point, which will set the rest of the novel into motion. Suzette has been kidnapped, and it's up to Maximilian to save her! What will become of these two small-town heroes? And who is the man who dares to stand against them? Read on to find out!Read More
