30 Days of Golden Knave – Day 4

I did very well yesterday! I got 1,500 words done!! I worked for several hours to get to that total. I was writing by hand too since this is just the second draft of Vice’s part of the story. I’m at the point where I need to add more scenes to fill out the story and add more drama to it. I can’t let Kitya have all the drama to herself. 🙂

I have to warn you all, this might be the only time you see Vice in this big of a role. Writing a character not the same gender as I am is proving a challenge, especially when he’s the main character. I had to redo a great many of the original scenes because I was still treating him as a secondary character, and it was showing in how I was writing the scenes. I am not writing from his point of view, and the scenes are better – imho anyway.

I’ll see you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

30 Days of Golden Knave – Day 3

I did’t get as much writing done as I’d hoped since I had Grand Jury duty. It’s supposed to be my last time until they can seat a new Grand Jury by the new year. I guess we’ll see what happens.

I did manage to write 500 words so that’s a grand total of 1,200 words so far. I need to step it up to get to 50,000 by the end of the month but truth be told, I don’t think Vice’s side of the story is going to be that long. I guess we’ll see since I’m about to leave the rough draft of his story and start adding more scenes to his side of the story as I beef it up. I look forward to seeing where this leads me.

30 Days of Golden Knave – Day 2

Had a good start of 300 words. That doesn’t sound like much but with my busy schedule, that’s actually a decent amount.

I have a tentative word count of 50,000 words by the end of the month but since this is a second draft I’m working on, I’ll be happy to just be done with Vice’s side of the story by the end of the month. I’ve been working on this for over a year now, and I’m ready to have it done.

The story is starting to flow again so it’s just a matter of making time to write. If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way.

30 Days of Golden Knave – Day 1

I don’t know what word count I’m starting this month with – I’ll check it later this evening and post it tomorrow. I do know I managed to write 400 words yesterday so that’s good. 🙂

I am doing my own writing event focusing on getting Golden Knave’s second draft finally done. I want to be able to publish it by my birthday in 2021 so I need to get to work on it. I believe I can work on this every day just like I did for The Inbetween during NaNoWriMo last month. I’ll be posting my word count and anything else I think you might be interested in hearing about happening around/during my writing session. I plan to write and then post the next day since there are 31 days in December versus 30 in November.

I feel good about getting this done. 🙂

30 Days of NaNoWriMo – Final Week!

Due to having been working out of town this past week, I wasn’t able to post my progress on NaNoWriMo. I did manage to write every day, but that was it. I’m back working in town now so I’ll do better with my posting. The following is a quick recap from the last time I posted which was on 22 Nov.

23 Nov. – I wrote 800 words

24 Nov – I wrote 1000 words. I also spent Thanksgiving with my son. He made the best turkey!

25 Nov. – I wrote 1000 words. I stayed up late writing because I couldn’t sleep. I got the count in before midnight so it counted.

26 Nov. – I wrote 800 words. I had to write before work because I was warned we’d be working late that night.

27 Nov – I wrote 300 words. I was so tired from the night before I almost didn’t write at all.

28 Nov – I wrote 400 words. I had some personal stuff to deal with on my only day off, and it didn’t put me in the writing mood.

29 Nov. – I wrote 200 words. I still had issues, and I almost didn’t write, but I was so close to the end.

30 Nov. – I wrote 460 words. I know that’s pretty odd, but I finished the story completely on the same day the event ended. I completed both of them with a grand total of 60,795 words.

I know I could’ve gotten more if I’d been in the writing mood this past weekend, but I am still pleased with the finish.

Thus ends the 30 Days of NaNoWriMo. I will be doing my own writing month in December with Golden Knave as my focus. I plan to have both it and The Inbetween published in 2021. Wish me luck and lollipops!!
