Welcome to my Weekly Writing Wrap-Up for this week!
Total Word Count for the Week: 7827
Top Writing Day: My top writing day was Thursday with 1,511 words.
What I Worked On: I worked on my Snow novel.
The Good News: I made my goal this week! Also, I believe I should be finished Snow in 4-5 more days. I’m so excited, and yet not sure that I’m quite ready to let her go. 🙂
The Bad News: Alas, the trials of becoming too emotionally attached to your characters. I had to write the scene where Snow finds out she’s going to die, and wow, that was a hard one to write. When I was writing the scene, I just kept apologizing, “I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I didn’t mean it! I’m sorry I must torture you!”
Lesson Learned: With Homeland, I was so excited to finish my novel and win NaNo, I didn’t have any trouble letting go of that novel’s rough draft. With Snow, just thinking about ending the story makes me hold onto my word document with a virtual death grip. My continuing ‘lesson learned’ is knowing when to end a story, even if I’m not exactly ready. 🙂
Goal for Next Week: My goal for this week is 900 words, again.
