Yes, it’s Monday. Yes, I’m posting my word count early.
And why am I so excited about my word count for the week?
‘Cause with those 2,515 words, I finished my novel!!!
I love the excitement, the energy I feel when writing the final chapters.
Muse is like a roller coaster car that has just cranked it’s way to the top of the biggest hill and is suddenly on free fall, the wheels not even touching the tracks.
Such a rush!
I predict I’ll be finished with this baby before the end of next week.
How was your week?
My WIP is different than any other story I’ve written.
The main conflict is not good guy vs bad guy. It’s the good guy vs. . . herself.
I like the story. I like the characters. And I think the whole thing is worth telling . . . but probably, most definitely, not the way I’m doing it.
When I started writing during NaNoWriMo I was dealing with the internal struggles quite well, but now that I’m close to finishing the whole plot has just gotten . . . blah, and the conflict has basically turned into “what fuckin’ conflict?”.
So what do you do when you’re 2/3 finished with your WIP and suddenly realize it has one big flaw that will mean major rewriting. . .
You keep writing.
You write until it’s finished because you can’t edit a story that’s still in your head.
