First and foremost, Happy Friday the 13th, everyone! Aren’t we lucky that it falls in the Spooktabulous month known all year. I hope yours is as creepy, spooky, and amazing as can be.
After more days than I want to admit staring at my WIP, watching it plot-block me while I tried to write for NaNo because I wanted it done and in the rear view mirror to be able to concentrate on my 50K words in November, I am finally seeing an end. A light at the end of the tunnel.
I had originally been stuck in a certain part, unsure of how to get from Point A to Point B without just droning on. Finally, I decided to just skip ahead and work out that transition later. Skipping ahead was the best thing I could have done, because I’ve gone from half way to nearly finished in the last three days of writing. My goal to finish the WIP by this weekend is officially looking like it will happen. I am over the moon about being able to finish this short.
Also, I’m over the moon about being able to really dig into my NaNo Planning and I’ll have half of October to do it. It’s cutting it a little tight, but since I have the main characters already fairly flushed out I should be able to hop to and be ready for N-Day.
How is your October going? Are you getting your planning down as you’d hoped? Are you finishing up WIPs on schedule? Let me know down in the comments!
