Before today, I hadn’t written anything since adding a bit after sharing the first little bit of the book back on the 15th. I kind of explained why I was struggling with things here. My story was also not going anywhere, so I wanted to take some time and see if I could find some direction again, which I think I manged to do today and get back on the horse, so to speak.
I’m still filling in some stuff, though I feel like I am closer to my main protagonist’s story than I was before. I still need to find out what he did to get where he is now, and why he hasn’t been able to stop being so miserable, but it’s getting there. As I alluded to in my previous post, the main part of this story will probably happen in 2007-2008, and I’m still trying to figure out if my current timeline still lines up exactly the way I want it to.
On with the stats:
Total words written: 21,171 (+965 from 6/15)
Daily average: 847 (down from 1,347) [Average on the 12 days I’ve actually written is still over 1,700]
Approximate days to end goal: 163+
Approximate days to next reveal: 34+
(These should start to shrink again once I get back close to the same pace as before)
