Yes! I did it.
I was able to start out fairly strong in the beginning of the month, and so I built up a lot of my word count before we hit the middle. This allowed me to be able to get the tail ends of my goal wrapped up before the complete end of the month was here, so I'm gald to report I'm done for my September writing goal!
I did not finish Prince of Demarken, again. I had hoped to, but... I DID get some really key scenes in, ones that had been getting me stuck for a while now, so we are making progress.
So I ended up letting it soak a bit while I worked on other things; mainly Twelve Dark Knights and The Beaded Slipper. Yes, those are the two chronologically-first spin off novels, so it was decided that working on them would be a good relief, (but still in the same world and therefore self-informative) for Prince of Demarken.
We've got some good times ahead with Twelve Dark Knights, let me tell you! :-) The set-up is just riff with fire-crackers and ready to blow in a million different ways! Going to be lots of fun in there!!!
Now that my goal is finished, I'm hoping to keep wrangling with the last stubborn scenes in Pricne of Demarken, and get them ironed out. I've let them "soak" long enough, I have a hunch they'll relent under pressure.
And of course, October is the month before NaNoWriMo, and I can't afford to be strangling the last drops of inspiration out of my brain in the dwindling light of October's end.
No, NO!!! That would be something worhty of a horror story!
I must have a fresh batch of creativity to tackle the long haul of 50k in November.... so that means I really need to have my alotted 20k for October done up very early in the month.
So I'm going to get working on it this month, in the week that we still have left.
The goal is to have 20k new words for every month, and if they're written early... WHO CARES? Certainly not I!!!
So, there are my plans for the next three months.
What do you think of them? Sound doable to you?
Do you have any big projects you're tackling? Have you planned it out?
