… not that I haven’t been usually belated for the check-ins this whole challenge. But, there actually is progress to report this time! So, yay!
First of all, as I mentioned, I switched my main goal to be 200 words a day, 5 days a week. I’ve been mostly making that. Some days more, some days slightly less (but at least 150 daily, which is more words than I’d been getting, as well as keeping me in the writing mentality).
Second of all, after a bit of experimenting, I’ve decided which story I’m going to write. I had toyed with a Shiny! New! Idea! (something about an emotional vampire and how she manages to not be evil) but when I started writing it was when I had the mediocre word count days. Then I decided I was going to switch back to the Colonial America Steampunk I’d been planning to write for RoW, and the words started flowing much faster and better. So I’m sticking with that idea.
It’s funny, isn’t it? The way we can talk ourselves out of the best plans? At least – this time – I was able to talk myself back INTO the good plan.
