So I’m at 8,300 words so far. I have a week to reach my goal of 25,000. But to be honest, my goals can’t be measured in words. My first goal–to complete a draft of my novella Traption–has been accomplished. My second goal–to finish the last several chapters of my novel, Oblivion’s Hope–is well on its way.
So far, I’ve written summaries of each scene for OH and I hope I get more momentum now that I’m actually composing narrative. I don’t really care if I reach 25,000 words, although to be honest, I would have set the goal lower knowing what I know now.
I’m enjoying the process and perfection is the enemy in many areas of life, whether that be weight loss, learning an instrument or … writing a book.
