I’ve admired my Aunt Ruthanne’s consistent Wednesday blog updates for years now (A More Colorful Life! Erry Wednesday!). I don’t have any classes Wednesday afternoons this semester and, seeing as this is my third blog post in three Wednesdays, maybe I can follow her example and make Wednesday posts a regular thing.
I won’t write much, though, because I’m trying to get as far ahead on NaNoWriMo as I can before the weekend.
Here’s my progress graph! I’m at tomorrow’s goal, and I haven’t even started writing for today yet.
I like how this book is coming together. I like the shape of it. I like the characters that are popping up out of the darkness. I like my ideas for the ending. The book feels complete, somehow, in a way my books rarely do at this stage in the writing. I know there are some threads that are missing, and I know I will have to go back to the beginning to weave a few new colors into the story, but I feel like I can hold the whole thing in my hands and I feel it is good. This feeling probably means I am in for a lot of surprises, but I’ll enjoy it while it’s here.
I’m also having fun writing this book. I want this to be my job. How do I make this my job? Oh yeah. Keep writing.
Good luck on NaNoWriMo and every other thing, you beautiful people, you.
One thought on “Day 18: Still Okay!”
I love that your novel is coming together so well. Mine is a mess, but I’m writing. Thanks for the mention. Sometimes that Wednesday blog post feels like the only thing I accomplish all week, so I hope I can keep up with it.
