A good day perhaps, for writing. I’m further advanced, but I don’t feel like I’m getting to where I need to be.
I guess it’s ‘welcome to the world of writing’.
Some stories can be written in 30 days. I’ve done it myself three years running.
But, taking on a more complex writing project, not that I thought it would be at the time, has taught me to respect an old adage my father used a lot, a long time ago:
Rome wasn’t built in a day
It’s not the only one he used, but it’s the one I remember.
This project will take more than thirty days. I often wondered why some writers took years to finish a book, and now I know definitively why.
Next year I’ll take on something a little lighter in subject matter, plan for the fifty or chapters, and get it done.
This is one that I should have tackled within the other eleven months.
Still, four days to go, and anything can happen!
For the statisticians, todays word count is 3,074, for a running total of 66,371. That, in itself, is a lot of words.
