Word count for today is 2184, which brings my total word count up to 6599. I got my badge for writing 5000 words by today.
Quite frankly, my writing is not the best I’ve ever done, but that’s not the point, is it? I’m tempted to go back after every paragraph and edit what I’ve written. It’s tough. Sometimes I do edit, but that slows me down. Editing time will come soon enough. Now, I’m supposed to be having fun writing out the story and sticking mostly to my outline. But here and there, my characters are doing a few different things, but mostly they are cooperating with what I have in mind. We’ll see what they’re up to tomorrow. Hopefully, I can keep them somewhat in line. That’s all I need, unruly characters who make my writing life difficult. But that could be fun too. Right?
