In November, I began writing a book (mentioned in this post). Last month, I decided to hold myself more accountable with monthly updates. For each update, I will share three things about the story (including word count).
Genre: If you haven’t joined me on Goodreads, you really should. I have just started delving into paranormal mystery, and I have absolutely no regrets. My novel definitely fits within this category and I’m excited to read more authors.
Word Count: I’m going to be honest. My writing has been a bit in the slump. Work has been crazy, so I have pulled some ridiculous overtime which as left me with zero motivation/creative energy. As a result, I’m pretty embarrassed about my progress.
- Story: 46,022
- Notes: 42,867
- Total: ~89,000
Main Character: Of all my characters, I worry that she is the least defined. I think it’s because she has to be so well rounded, and I don’t want her to feel like a stock character. As I write, her personality is slowly growing and evolving. Therefore, there are only a few things I can share now with certainty: (1) she’s an artist (quick sketches, with more of a passion for painting), (2) she’s fairly reserved, and (3) she has a talent for finding missing objects.
What do you want to know in my next novel update?
