I know, I know—I’ve been MIA on the blog front. That’s because I’ve given myself an ultimatum: I’m not allowed to do anything but WRITE until I finish my WIP (the Peru book), which I expected to finish two weeks ago.
Yes, that was an unrealistic expectation, in retrospect, since that would have had me finishing during Spring Break week. But I thought *surely* I would finish *last* week—not taking into account the plethora of school- and kid-related meetings we had scheduled. I also didn’t take into account the fact that I would be replotting the entire ending sequence of events. I guess that one was because I didn’t expect to replot, but there you have it.
Why do stories defy our best attempts at prediction?
Anyhow, I have a new direction and three chapters to write and, theoretically, the time to write them. Here’s the word count report for March and the start of April:
3/1 – 3/7 7730 words
3/8 – 3/14 8320 words
3/15 – 3/21 1540 words
3/22 – 3/28 3070 words
3/29 – 4/4 2360 words
I didn’t meet my word count goals the past few weeks, but I’m determined to plow through to the end this week. Go, go, go!!!
Happy writing to everyone
