Second Chances is still going well.
Though, I have come to the realization that even though I’ve been doing well without an outline, I’m going to need to make a timeline of events that happened in Lesley’s life as well as Hunter’s life. Maybe Ezekiel, too. I’m not sure if we’re ever really going to find out more about him.
I mean, Lesley did ask him how he died and he told her it was none of her business, so…
Anyway, with that being said, the scenes in my novel are definitely going to be switched around in the editing process (or taken out, depending on the situation).
I think that will be the next step when the first draft is complete. Before editing, I will create a timeline of events for everyone.
My word count has continued to be steady. I’m proud of myself for continuing to write every single day. Normally I get ahead and then I’ll skip a day or two and then get back into writing without ever getting behind. I always end up finishing early, too.
I really didn’t want to do that this year (or any year for that matter). So I’ve been doing great keeping a good pace.
After explaining all this, I’ve sure you’ve noticed that I didn’t write anything on the 14th. That day was my sister’s baby shower. So it’s not like I just decided to skip because I knew I was ahead. I was out literally all day and was exhausted when I got home.
That is the only day I’m skipping this month, though.
At the rate I’m going, I’m planning on hitting 50k by November 20 or November 21. That’s if I keep my 2k-4k a day goal. I’ll be writing for the rest of the month after that, though. I don’t think the story will be finished at 50k.
I wonder if I’ll write enough to finish the novel by the end of the month?
