I’ve got a brunch to go to tomorrow morning, so I thought I’d do my update this evening.
I worked on Glow every day this week except Thursday, which is the day I used my writing time to outline the remaining chapters. (If you’re confused by why my pantser self wrote an outline, go here to get the full story.) I managed 5,597 words this week. That equals about a chapter and a half, although it really depends on whose chapter it is. 🙂 Zellie gets the most page time, followed by Ben and then Melody.
I’m reluctant to set any goals beyond, “work on Glow,” but it would be nice to finish 2-3 chapters a week.
I’ve also decided to add to and publish a book of memoir essays. (If you’re confused as to why my “I’m only working on Glow this round” self would do this, go here to get the full story.)
I wrote something like, 1,886 new words on that last night and I think I’ll finish up the essay this evening. That is if my damn carpal tunnel would stop acting up. I’ve been typing a bit more than usual lately. 🙂
I’m kind of excited to be putting the book of essays out. A stand-alone! No pressure to leave just the right amount of cliffhangers. No trying to remember what color eyes I said a character had in the last book. (‘Cause you know it makes me absolutely cringe to more than skim my previous work.) No next book deadline to meet!
I do have a bunch of mommy essays lying around as well.
I suppose I can save those for round three.
Because I’m not making goals.
Have a good week you all.
