Alright, so the internet on my computer is finally working again. Let’s hope that it stays that way. We’ll keep our fingers crossed. On that note, this is the first time that I have really been on my computer because of the slowness of the internet, so it’s quite obvious that I have not written anything.
It’s sad because I was trying to do a fake NaNo with myself and I’m still at 14,193 words when I should be at 32,260 today. I have been reading, so at least I’ve been keeping up with something. I should give myself some credit.
School starts on Tuesday (sad day) so I’m going to be busy with school and work up until the summer. However, I’m going to try my best to read and write every day like I have been so far…kind of. Tomorrow, Monday, I do not have school or work because it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. day. I’m going to try to get as much done as I can tomorrow on account that it’s my last day of freedom!
So that’s pretty much it. I just wanted to touch base. I’ll post again tomorrow with any real updates. 🙂
I’m still writing The Blank Page. I don’t know how many chapters this novel is going to be. I’m on chapter four, I haven’t started it, though. I do think that for chapter four I’m going to have them all read what they have so far. Not all of it, of course. But it should be an interesting chapter. Justin hates everything that Adair does, Adair critiques and does everything and anything to bother Justin, and poor Dominic is there just wanting some real feedback on what he has so far.
It’ll be in a tough chapter to write because I know what Dominic’s plot is, but I haven’t even thought once about Adair’s novel or Justin’s novel. This chapter is going to be a long haul, but that’s part of the reason as to why I’m planning this chapter to be like this. If I’m going to write about three people writing three different novels, I need to know what each novel is about and how each novel is going to turn out. I’m sure whoever reads this series would like to know, as well.
In the last post I mentioned how I was thinking about writing their novels. Well, I think more on it now and I realize that if I wrote those three novels right now, it would certainly help me write The Blank Page and the rest of the series. I will already know the plot, the characters, the beginning, the middle, and the end. But, I’ll wing it for now. That is what editing is for, right?
So I set my timer for an hour once more and again I stopped before the timer went off. I stopped because I finished chapter three and I wasn’t really looking forward to writing a little of chapter four for three minutes and stopping right in the middle of it. Of course, I could have written more, but I wrote a lot today. I made it to 11,010 words. If I wrote another 281 words, then I would have broken my word count for day seven. This fake NaNo thing is really working out for me. It’s too bad that the real NaNo didn’t work out for me. But then again, I got pretty far in that novel and I did finish it in December, so I guess I can’t really complain.
That’s all for today. I may write a little bit more today, but I do doubt it. I have a few other things that I need to get done and I just have to say thank God it’s the weekend. I don’t have work today, which is a plus because that means I don’t have anywhere important to be later.
