In November, I began writing a book (mentioned in this post) and I’ve been keeping myself accountable by posting monthly-ish updates (posts 1 ,and 2, and 3). For each update, I share three things about the story (including word count).
Dare I even mention my word count? Life has taken some crazy turns (and some interesting adventures that I will have to blog about). It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I have let it impact my writing. Sadly, there have been several weeks where I didn’t even write at all!
- Story: 52,257

- Total: ~101,000 words
I am only two scenes away from finishing my first draft! I’m really looking forward to revising. I just have to motivate myself to hash out these last two scenes.
I can’t decide if it is too cliche for my main character to have a love interest (or two). However, I think that most readers in this genre will expect it. So part of my revisions will be the development of a love interest. As long as it’s not forced, then I think it will be fine.
What do you want to know next about my story? I am still reading paranormal mysteries. Do you have any books or authors to suggest?
