So, apparently shampooing the carpet can throw out your back. I feel like I’m an elderly person instead of young, spry twenty-something. Anyway, due to being in pain all day, I didn’t do anything physical, so I was able to get a lot of writing done. I was in the zone!
Not sure I can keep up these long posts every day, though. I feel as if it’s taking almost as much time to write a daily update as to write the actual book. So, I might confine these daily updates to something shorter. Let me know what you guys would prefer!
Words written today: 1,912
Total words written: 7,324/50,000
Goal words needed: 4,839/50,000
Difference: 2,485 words ahead of schedule.
Current chapter: Chapter 2 (but I finished this chapter, so technically I’m on 3).
Time spent writing: 2.5 hours
Current weather: It rained all day…so it’ll be probably a very wet 4th of July.
Tips: Don’t worry about adding pointless, boring scenes into your first draft (like detailing a character making breakfast). You can always narrow it down later.
Extra notes: I did a lot of research before writing this book, but now that I’m writing it I realize I knew absolutely nothing. More research, I guess.
