Not quite, but after that writing tear last week, I went in and removed about 2,000 words. I’m not really sure how many new words I managed this week, but I’m going to take a guess at ~3,200 of them.
And sometimes that happens. It doesn’t matter how much I outline or work on the story structure beforehand, I need to actually write the words to learn what the story is really about.
This time, my characters discovered a mysterious, locked briefcase that wasn’t there in the outline. What’s inside the briefcase? Other than some angry ghosts, I’m not 100% certain.
So, this coming week, I’ll relook the structure and (fingers crossed) move forward with the story.
Otherwise, some Photoshop, some folklore, and a few submissions.
- Series work (structure, brainstorming, research)
- Graphic Design/Photoshop tutorials
- Writing, ~3,200 words
- Folklore classes
- Cheating Death
- Moving Day
