Only two and a half pages today, but I'm all right with that. I got the content that I wrote last time edited, which was good, and I also figured out a minor plot point that had been holding me back with the rest of this chapter. I took yesterday and Friday off, and had intended to take today off as well, but just couldn't stay away that long at once. I've been feeling really tired, and fairly sick (just a cold or allergies, I think), so that's been putting a crimp in my writing. I slept for about 12 hours last night, which is extraordinarily rare for me.
Fortunately, I already had 84 total pages for September, and my goal was 80, so I had earned a couple of days off. Now I'm up to 86 pages, so that's even better for ending the month. Here's hoping I can reach 160 pages total by the end of October!
The stats as of today:
-36,000 estimated words.
-42,091 actual words.
-Five-and-a-portion fully-revised-and-expanded chapters (86 pages total).
-Eleven completed chapters in all (144 pages).
It's good to see you're still making this progress. I really hope to be joining you soon... So much has been happening in my life, writing really suffered. But I'm back into it now, with critiquing for others and working on a short story of my own. Also, the original novel has - once again - been whispering to me, so we'll see...
Congrats on beating your target for the month! Hope you feel better soon, too.
Thanks, Karen! And, it looks like you are turning things around re: your own writing. Sometimes life just has to take precedence, right? But now that things are (hopefully) settling down more, glad to see that you're hearing the whisperings properly again. :)
Steady progress is euphoric, isn't it?
It certainly can be...
