The big finish. After seven weeks of writing full out, where do I stand?
Last week, my tally was 73K words written in six weeks. This past week was insanely productive. As is so often the case with a book, Wulfe and Christina’s book poured from my fingertips as it came to its conclusion. I wrote more than 40K words on that book (phew!) and after one last tweak, it’s off to my editor. I think the ending writes quickly because I have it in my mind while wrestling through the middle bit. Once I begin to write the last third of the book, the story just flies.
Here are my seven week totals:
Project One: 25,866 words
Project Two: 96,700 words
Project Three: 21,233 words
That’s 115K in seven weeks, AND in the summer! I’m very pleased.
Interestingly, there’s another seven weeks before November and NaNoWriMo. I’ll take a couple of days to clean my office and catch up on other things, but by the end of the week, I may be off again. Project One and Three still need to be finished, plus Project Four (Bartholomew’s book) has been added to the queue.
