#WritingWednesdays even though it’s Thursday


#WritingWednesdays is a weekly blog hop/meme where we writers tell the world how all the writerly things are going. It’s a way for us to self-motivate and cheer each other on, even when we didn’t quite make the ‘Wednesday’ part of the hop. Please forgive my tardiness.

Here’s what’s been happening this week for me:

1. Lots of thinking about and working on the WIP. I completed my read through and realized I’d run out of words to edit, which meant creating new words and fresh scenes, which is as exciting as it is terrifying.

2. I was feeling pumped for the last 10k or so of this novel because I had the ending all figured out. But in chapter 29 of a proposed 35, a new character emerged. He’s awesome in every way and I love him, except his existence has completely derailed my plan for the end of this novel!

3. I’ve stalled around chapter 30 trying to figure out a new ending and how to work this character into earlier chapter so his sudden appearance is at least foreshadowed because he’s important and did I mention awesome!?

4. At very least I hit my 65k target and am in fact sitting just under 66k – booyah!

That’s it forΒ this week. Goal for next Wednesday is to figure out a new ending and hit 68k. The SNI is officially on hold until I can get the ending of this WIP figured out again.

How has your writerly week been going?

    Great job hitting your target! It’s annoying when those pesky new characters appear and mess up our plans. πŸ˜› Hopefully you’ll think of a solution! πŸ™‚

    Oh. THOSE characters. Yeah, they do like to come in and toss your outline out the window, don’t they? Gotta love them! Good job hitting your target! πŸ™‚

    • Hehe, yeah. Don’t know why I bother with an outline. πŸ˜‰ Thanks!
