the weekend sprint

Last Thursday I wrote a post on writing goals, intending to switch to weekly goals instead of monthly goals. By next Friday, I was to have passed 36,000 words. And then I promptly went to Seattle and wrote over two-thousand words in one night. I’m nearly a thousand words over this week’s goal already, and I’ve got four more days to go.

I like this part of my book. It threw me for a few unexpected loops, but I seem to be hanging in there. I’m in the middle of an important battle, and I’m going back to focus on the mercenaries soon. Let’s hope it doesn’t completely break my outline before chapter nine. Everything seems to be clicking into place, plots and sub-plots weaving themselves better than I thought I could do on my second time through. Rewriting this a second time seems less daunting right now.

I wonder how long I can keep this up…

I also just found out that a fellow I knew from my old church that we went to (in Seattle, when we didn’t live across the state) is a published fantasy author– Jeffrey Overstreet. In the spirit of the publishing/writing business, I pounced on his book and blog immediately. *dances the happy networking dance*

One thought on “the weekend sprint

  1. Congrats on keeping up with your goals! There’s nothing more satisfying that when the whole of a story starts to settle into place — I look forward to it. =D

    Also, way to go on networking. Networking is, like, my least favorite thing ever. ^^;
