End of day two. I guess that means I owe you a blog post!
Day two was not my best day. I gave up fairly early in the day considering I didn’t start until 10am and took a two hour nap after lunch. I just couldn’t write this story anymore. I don’t want to say for sure that I’ve quit the contest – I may wake up wondrous tomorrow – but I quit today. Mentally, I’m not there. It’s t the stress of the move, I know. Change is harder on me than it is for most folks. It was really poor planning on my part.
But I did write some so as promised, the statistics:
– 8,915 words
– 23 pages
– 8 chapters
It’s the furthest I’ve ever gotten in writing a novel. The novel I’ve worked on the most (which admittedly wasn’t much) has just a hair over 8,000 words, half of which I’m planning to scrap. So, all in all, I say this was a success for me whether I do anything tomorrow or not.
But seriously, don’t expect me to do this next year.
