As you can see, week three wasn’t my best week.

I hit a bump in the road with my novel this week. I had a moment where I didn’t really know where the story was going. It got to the point that I was writing just to get more words for my NaNo goal.

I took a break from writing for a day and rested my mind. When I got back to writing the next morning, I had a better idea of where I was going.

This past weekend I didn’t write anything because I wasn’t feeling well. I planned on finishing Friday or Saturday, but oh well. Life gets in the way sometimes.

I have about 4,000 words left. So maybe I’ll finish tomorrow.

I need to do research as I don’t really know what I’m writing about when it comes to courts and trials, but I’m just going to do my best for now and leave the research for the editing process.

There’s a lot I have to do for this novel once the first draft is completed. I have to make timelines for my characters and do a bit of research before I can start the editing process.

It’ll be interesting.

  1. 4000 words you can do it! Especially if you are able to write 5000 words in a day or at least 2000. That’s a great number.

    I know how you feel about running out of story and I just went back and put detail in a couple of other scenes when I was 2.5K words short.

    Hope you;re feeling better and hit that 50K! You’re so close 🙂

      1. Haha! My last 5000 words were completely out of order and I completely forgot that when I got stuck on a scene I would move on to the next. So I had a couple of half written scenes where I was able to add significant word counts.

        So write out of order. That’s the beauty of it all isn’t it 🙂

Let me know what you think!
