20k in May: Complete!
Well that was very down to the wire, but I've finished up my monthly goal of 20k for May just right now.
So that's a great feeling!!!
Want to know what's even greater?
I have the urge to keep going on this scene that came to mind as I desperately needed one to finish out my word count for the month!
That's one of the wonderful things about having a monthly goal, for me it allows a lot of flexibility within the month, but if assures that at least at some point, I will have to really push myself beyond the "comfort zone" of writing only when and if I totally, completely am inspired.
And sometimes in those "reach zones" there is real treasure to be found!
This scene is a perfect example... I had not thought to have the Tree King show up in the #4 Thaw book, but suddenly here he is and he's answering a lot of questions that have been sort of floating around all through this series so far. The profundity of his replies are setting up a whole slew of information, further enriching the world for this series to go forward in, and laying a foundational hints at some of the things that are to come.
Though Ilise is totally oblivious to the clues... I think readers who read this series twice will catch a whole ton of suggestion here!!!
I love moments like this. Gifts from the pinch-points, so to speak.
What goal have you finished this month?
Do you have a long range goal you're working on?
You all take care!
