It’s a sad state of affairs when it’s worthy of a blogpost when I’m actually writing some fiction, but we are where we are. Over the weekend, intent to write something fictional-related, whether it be a character or a scene. I started to write and write and didn’t really stop all day. While the start may be shaky, it’s quite a lot of progress and seems to be currently taking a novel’s shape. I’m going to keep plugging away at it, try not to think about it took much, and I’ll certainly resist the temptation to go back, read and begin to self-editorialise and critique. There will be plenty of time for that on the next draft.
So, on the right-hand side of the front page I’ll be tracking my progress with the following snazzy charts. Currently the rough target is 50,000 and I’ll judge that was I progress. Wish me luck!
