Last report wordcount + chapter count/scene count:
64 576 words, and was done with the second act.
Current report WC + CC/ SC:
65 680 words and still working on my first chapter.
WIP Issues This Month:
I think the main issue I had this month was moving (I’ll be leaving for Chicago shortly), and all the stress associated with it. There were days I just didn’t write at all (not sure that’s a WIP issue).
Also, I’m really having problems trying to tie up my first chapter with the last chapter, which unsurprisingly is even yet to be written. I need to sit down and brainstorm some more to handle it.
Four things I learned this month while writing:
I didn’t write a lot this month, sadly. However, the first step to writing is opening your Scriverner/ Word document etc.
I also read that when writing climaxes, a better ending is that which the MC solves by some ingenuity/ gift on their path.
What distracted me this month while writing:
Moving, moving, moving. 😦 And everything associated with it.
Goal for next month:
5k. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please!
Last 200 words:
Unedited territory but here’s my new opening instead (what do you think?)
The first sign of the uprising was here. And it came as a most dreadful symptom.
How did everyone do this month?
