Yay, I’ve finished the important goal. The first draft of Hero/Villain is done. Don’t worry. I’ll still tease on Tuesday. I’ve got a cute little Ace teaser.
So on Wednesday, I started out with 42.4K. I knew that it and Thursday were my last days off before I fly out to LA this upcoming Thursday, so I wanted to get as much as possible done. I went to my favorite cafe (where I hung out most of the time during my mini-writing vacation in April) and shot for 6K. I made it and kept going.
Yesterday (Saturday) when I finished during a break at work, I had 58K and the book was done. This was about 16K in three and a half days.
I started the book with 16K in my three and a half day writing vacation. I see a theme here.
Clearly the theme is that I was just as enthralled by the book at the end as I was in the beginning, lol. Too bad about that middle. Nah, there are lots of places in the middle where I love it, but I let other things distract me, and didn’t commit myself to writing as much (I’m actually a slow writer, I just get committed to it when I’m on a roll).
And the best part is, I still love this book. I love Evie and Ace just as much now.
Now I have to go add some scenes in, and then I can edit like crazy on the plane to LA. Woooohoooo.
Currently on new iPod (old one is the same): Secret by The Pierces
Lots of love,
