You know that feeling you sometimes get, as though you’re talking to an empty arena?
That’s okay. I’ll survive if I’m just talking to myself around here. I’ll just try not to answer myself.
Anyway. I have nooz. Progress is happening on this novella. I’ve got over 5K words written so far. The maximum word count is 20K, so I’m anywhere from one-third to one-quarter done. Yanno, it doesn’t seem so bad when you look at it like that. I have to do a little planning work, though. I need to figure out how many chapters I’m gonna have, and therefore how many words in each chapter. I think I should do that tonight before I get too much farther into this story and need to make some dramatic changes. Sounds like a plan, don’t you think? I agree.
In one way, I’m glad to see the word count rising. And it feels like it’s climbing reasonably quickly (for me, at least). This inspires me with more than a little confidence. I can get this novella done and get started on another one. Momentum is good. Momentum is important. I have to stay on this roll until it becomes habit. Must, must, must.
Anyway. I am about to switch from “writer” mode to “mom” mode. Wish me luck.
