Not much for a word count yesterday. I added on 1,413 words. But at least I added to my word count. There are times that adding to the word count is so slow, it's like torture. I think that 7,000 plus, word day really took it out of me. I need about 12,000 words to finish.
I'm already planning where I'm going to frame and hang my winner's certificate. I might be getting a little bit ahead of myself, but I can see the end up ahead and I still have such a long way to go on my story. 50,000 words is only going to scratch the surface of what I'm writing. I should have no trouble reaching my goal.
My story last year was a good one. It had layers and dimensions, several plot twists and a decent amount of characters. This year, though, I am blown away by how much my story telling skills have grown. By leaps and bounds.
I have parked my paper boat (it was taking on water and my words were disappearing) jumped on a paper airplane and headed out. Yes, this is a lot faster and it's easier to see where I'm going from up here.
