Work in Progress – Week 2

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!
