Progress At Last!
I managed to finish Chapter 13 today, which I am excited about, but I am more excited about the fact that I have finally come up with a complete storyline. I know every scene, minus the gritty details, of how the book will go. I have figured out a conflict and how to resolve it. All I have to do for crying out loud is write it! I am so anxious! I am just under 19,000 words and my chapters are anywhere from 1000-1500 words long. By the time I am done, I may have 50 chapters. I don't know if that is considered ridiculous or not, but I don't care. It is my book after all. I know it may be wishful thinking, but I think I can squeeze out a chapter in one to two days now if I can manage to keep damn Netflix off. It is my downfall. That puts my timeline anywhere from 45 to 60 days...if I don't take too many days off. Since the kids are back in school from Christmas break. I think I will be fine. I have found my motivation, and I am ready to get this thing done!
