Hello once more. Just your friendly neighborhood writer man back again to talk about my week.
I wrote every single day, save Saturday this past week. It made the week go by quicker, and I felt accomplished. Even though I’ve not really been back in the habit of doing so, it seems to be coming easy. At least most days.
Last night I only wrote around 500 words, but I made up for it today. I went to bed early, so I was able to wake up early and tackle what I wasn’t able to do the previous night. I suppose that’s alright, even though I attempt to write at least 1,000 words a day.
The story is coming along nicely, and the co-author is doing an amazing job. Not only for keeping me on task, but also pointing out places that could be improved. Which lead me to watch things that I wouldn’t have usually, just to get a better feel for the character interaction I wanted for two of the individuals in this story.
It’s nice having someone willing to work with, and help the writing process. I think that while I had several people help edit/proofread my last several books, this is more direct, and helps shape the story before it is somewhat more congealed into a book. Meaning once I get my first draft done it is a larger hastle to re-write large sections of it when things change too much. I’ve done it, and will likely do it again, but this way there is someone really watching the book grow before it gets to a point where large sections need to be scrapped to make it read better.
This all being said, we’re at about 25% finished with the first draft, and it’s going very well. I look forward to seeing you next week.
