Got pretty close to 14,000 words done today. Why go over my 10,000-word goal? Because I had a couple of fairly clean chapters, and I know I’m not far from hitting the massacre, where I started ripping holes in the manuscript and writing cryptic little notes to myself like, “Write new scene, include monster, silver door, and (X) subtheme.” When I hit those sections, the book goes from being revision to being first draft PLUS revision, and takes a lot more time, and gets a lot meaner.
So covering extra ground today seemed like a good plan. And I had Jean to hang out with online, doing tens with me. We had a pretty productive day.
Tomorrow, it’ll be into the deep mess.
