A work in progress
It’s Thanksgiving week and so I plan to be brief. I also know many of you are writing that 50000 word novel this month.
I’m at 35000 words in my 75000 WIP. I’m getting closer to bringing in a huge upset to the story. Not the black moment, but a change that will affect the MC in a big way.
Then the downhill slide begins to the end.
But this time, I’m taking my good old sweet time. You see, I’m hoping book number five is better than all the previous four. I’m hoping that I’ve learned something and I’ll put that knowledge into play in this one.
But I’m also more realistic now. More than I was maybe six months ago.
This book might show me new need areas to work on. Not be the one.
And that’s okay.
So here’s my brief post with my brief question to you: What did you learn from your last writing effort?
