Only 10,000 words left until I reach the 50k goal. I’m pretty sure my novel is going to go over the word limit because I still have a lot to write.
I’m hoping to reach 50k in about 4 days and then hopefully I’m still motivated to finish the book.
I want to finish the book, but the 50k goal has been what’s driving me and I’m worried once I hit it that my motivation will slip and I won’t finish Blooders.
I’ll just keep telling myself I can do it. I’m really looking forward to having finished another novel this year. Well written, it won’t be finished for a while until they’re being edited.
I plan to edit the first book Djinn over September and October, getting beta readers and an editor to look at it.
I was also planning to do the November NaNoWriMo where I was going to write book 3 in the Djinn series, but I might be in India with my best friend, which I really excited about.
I have a lot of books lined up to be read while I’m editing, including Brigid Kemmerer’s novel Spark and Arcadium by my friend Sarah Gray.
I’ll also take this time to mention her book. Sarah and I did our writing course together and she has just released her debut book, Arcadium. You can read about it here on her blog.
I’ll be reviewing her book and the others I read as usual, so keep an eye out for that.
I’m getting a little off topic with all this but I’ve also got plans for a dystopian zombie novel that I’ve been dying to write for a while now. I’ve been wanting to write it even more now with my obsession of The Walking Dead (show and comics).
So that might be the next book I write around December/ January time.
I think that might be all from me right now. I’ll be posting about editing and writing over the next months as that’s what I’ll be doing at the time.
Have a great weekend everyone!
