3 down, 8 to go

Just doubled chapter 3 while listening to an audiobook.  A week tomorrow and it'll be finished, but I realised this morning that I'm not intending on sending it out to be published, it's not good enough for that, but I'm just writing it for myself so it doesn't matter how many words it finishes at, it's just my first attempt at sci-fi is all.

That's the second chapter doubled

Just doubled the wordcount for the second of the eleven chapters.  Should I attempt to double the third chapter too today, or leave it be until tomorrow?

Monday, 22 August 2016

Doubled the length of the first chapter so far...

Not bad going, I reckon!  At least an extra 1k a day will take it up to 22k and I'll make it into a short short story instead of a novella otherwise I'll have to take it up to 50k which is more than 4 times longer and I'll never eek 50k words out of my first ever sci-fi MS!

It's purely for my benefit though, I doubt very much I'll send it anywhere for publication... it's just not something I enjoy writing is all!  I much prefer realistic and fantasy!

3rr0r c0d3 is ready for being added to this week

Gonna work on 3RR0R C0D3 this week.

It's currently 11,030 so I'm gonna try and at least double it this week and put in 2,000 per chapter instead of the current 1,000.

 Wish me luck!

40k words in 17 days

Just put the final full stop in the MS I started writing on 2nd August so I've written exactly 40k words in 17 days!  Yay!

Going to treat myself to a small bottle of J2O now in celebration of that final full stop in my first draft.

Writing plans today

I've got 2 plans for my writing today

First is to finish of Tales from Camp Cryptid - not bad going to write 40k words in less than a month.

Second is to plan out an ER about Y2 SATs... I'm hoping it'll help rather than petrify the young readers!
