For my fellow authors keeping tabs on me, I’m putting the word count over on right-hand side of the blog, along with the percentage to 70,000 and the number of chapters I’m through.
I’ve had a fair number of positive comments on the sample chapter of Crystal Tech. That said, I think I’m starting over. I’ve hit a few obsticals that are just getting me hung up and I can’t move past. I’ll enumerate them as a warning for other authors
OK, I hit a streak there for a while, now I’m slacking. I want to push through it and get up to 30K in the next couple of weeks, but work and home keep conspiring to keep me away from the keyboard.
Trying to get to 20,000 words this week. Already put down 2000 on Monday (and finished Chapter Five). Going on to Chapter Six (the history of the Aurnia Cliona, which is pretty cool). Time willing, I’ll go back and doctor up Chapter One enough to practice recording.
