|I felt like this a lot this week!|
Ah, but it didn't work out that way. Even though I can be a very lazy writer, I buckled down and was able to write over 1,000 words during the week. I was still able to make regular blog posts, too! So, I'm still on track for my goal to have the first draft of the new book finished by the end of April.
Right now I'm over 10,000 words in, deep in to chapter 11. I still don't know what this one's going to be called. All I've got is The Deliverers: ..., the subtitle has eluded me. Oh well, I still have 80% to go.
I keep running in to characters in this book. Eric ran into two (literally) this week. I don't know where they're coming from, but they all seem to be adding something to the story, so I'll just go with it. I think these two will be a lot of fun, and maybe add a comic aspect that will lighten things up a bit. Their names are Chunk and Cyril. They've got an important role to play, but hopefully they'll make you chuckle a little, too.
That's my writer's week for week #5 of 2012. It was a very successful one all the way around. I'm really proud that I was able to stick to it and get some real writing accomplished. This weeked is beckoning, and although I've got a full schedule, I have some time earmarked to write. I'll let you know how it went next week.
