I’m writing this well into Day 6, because it’s Saturday, and Saturdays are not conducive to writing. So I’m going to try and keep this short, because tonight’s going to have slim opportunity for progress.
Day 5 was productive, as I expected. Though I progressed far less than the day before, I actually wrote more. yesterday’s word count was 2,310, and actual polishing/writing/revising/editing is a total of 6,242. The goal was 7k+, but oh well.
The Work in Progress that I’m trying to complete on Day 7 is at 35,150 words that I’m happy with. There’s another 15k of words needing attention, and I know there’s a few new chapters that don’t exit that I need to bring to light.
I would be happy with the final draft of this book hitting around 50k to 55k words.
Am I worried? Yes, a little. I think I’m going to go a day or two over on my goal, which I guess isn’t such a big deal, since this is Week 1 for working my progress up toward Pulp Fiction writing speed. I still intend to be disappointed in myself. 🙂
I’ll do a book reveal and cover reveal once this first draft is finished.
Oh! I also worked on the Spilling Blood Season 3 paperback! I may be able to wrap up the layout portion tomorrow. *Yes! Fist pump!*
As for next week, I’m thinking about doing a rewrite on Hungry Gods Book 3, which again won’t give me high word counts (since it’s already written), but needs lots of love. It would be nice to let it see the light of day.
