I haven’t posted in a good long while since I’ve had my story issues. It’s been a crazy week. Sorry about that.
Sadly, last week was almost a write off for word count and I’ve fallen behind. I am currently 7k behind where I should be to succeed. I hit a bit of a slump that wasn’t completely story related. The interesting thing is that I had the same kind of slump with Revenant. I had a really lousy 2nd and 3rd week too and rallied to pull it out of the fire.
The good news is that 7K is not a catastrophic amount. The great news is that I’m back on track in my writing routine. I gave the WIP a good kick in the teeth yesterday and the words being typed felt good. Adding parts from Beth’s point of view is really illuminating to me and adding word count as well. I will be able to catch up and be on track in due course.
I’m still a little lost, I’m not out of the woods yet. I still have issues but I’m working through them. The even more great news is that I’m confident that I can work them out as I continue writing this week.
This weekend I have a meeting with my new writing group (the first of what I hope will be many). They are awesome people whose writing ability I respect and admire, beyond being tremendous and very supportive friends. I look forward to hashing these issues out with them and hopefully helping them out as well and just getting generally inspired to write. It’s exciting!
As I’ve said before. I cannot lose. This story will be written.
