In the spirit of public accountability, I’m posting even though this day has NOT gone as well as the others.
Today’s word count: 1263.
Total word count: 75,250 of 90,000.
Percent completion: 83.6%.
Beautiful things: bike couriers, hand-pulled noodles at Pacific Mall.
Horrible things: everyone wants you to talk about things and you just want to whack-a-mole every single thought that surfaces in your brain.
Favourite sentence: “It was the voice he used on both Gavin and Asta, when they were sleepy or sick and had to be coaxed.”
What went wrong with this day: Late start due to unavoidable obligation; rewrote the same scene four or five times before getting it even close; deleted another scene entirely, cancelling out a bunch of word count.
Interesting note: judging by where I am right now, this novel isn’t actually going to hit 90k. I think I’m closer to the end of the action than that. Which is fine. I’ll just throw in some more sex 😉
