It was another uneven week, and I left too much writing until the last couple days. My goal was 30,000 words and I end this week a few thousand words shy of that. And so my goals have been shot down!
I’m not too bummed. I’ll make it up next week and I have spent a fair bit of time (belatedly) fleshing out my story and giving myself a purpose to write towards. Always a good thing! Also I have continued to research India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan and have gleaned a host of details to incorporate. Finally I have reduced the aimed for word count to 80,000. There should be room for expansion in rewrites, but it’s too hard for me to stretch narrative over such a long distance.
And so no reward for me this week. It’s a shame, as I wanted to print up a copy of MYTHIC ICELAND. But since I won’t actually play anytime soon, it’s no big deal.
This time next week I should be around 45,000 words. In the immortal words of Shaggy, Jeepers!
