The plan to take it easy (physically) over the weekend has paid off. I had a nice and relaxed day yesterday – a bit of shopping and a coffee out late morning – and still managed to crank out a good number of words without too much of a problem. And today has been pretty much the same.
The story is going well but even despite a framework to write by it still has gone off at tangents. That’s what I like about writing. It’s good to have a plan but when the characters choose to do something different then you have to let them and deal with it.
So … the current totals for Tiberius Bound is:
- Previous total – 28,756
- Saturday’s total – 2,157
- Today’s total – 2,204
- New total – 33,117
That means I’m up on the required minimum average by 3,111 words.
