I have returned. It's been a while since my last post, but I have been extremely productive!
Where am I now with respect to word count?
I am actually quite stunned.
I had no idea I could get out that much in such a short period of time. Everytime I look at the page numbers, I'm floored. I can't believe I was able to even write that much at all. Prior to this, I have never even made it past 50 pages. That's the absolute most I have ever written.
To see the page numbers in the hundreds... well, it's just amazing. If I can continue like this, I may just actually meet my word count goal for the end of October. I may even be further!
You know what's kind of weird? I'm barely following the outline that I did back in July. I am a little bit, but my main male character seems to be doing his own thing completely. He's honestly been surprising me. Is that normal? It's never happened to me before--usually everything takes place as I want it to happen. With this book however, he's really taking control!
I mean--everything is still leading up to where it's supposed to, but the "in between stuff" is taking on a whole new shape.
I'll see when I go back and re-read if I'm going to keep his recent actions. I know exactly what type of guy he should be, but he's been acting out a little bit.
That's it for today--I'm going to try and post more often too.
Bye for now!
