Project Goal: To get a first draft this novel.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: I read a story on tumblr and read comments that said someone should write a story based off that topic. The suggestions and my desire to expand on it inspired my own version. It's paranormal (not sci-fi as I originally stated).

Last 200 words:

I heard him curse. He stood there slouching over the table and my traitorous heart wanted to go comfort him. I gripped my arms to hold myself in place. He mumbled something. I strained my ears to hear what he said and I got glimpses of it. "Why couldn't you have stayed just a little longer." My chest turned as cold as I felt while I froze in the cooler. "If you stayed just a little longer I would have gotten you out of there. Now I need to find her before anyone else does." He planned on rescuing me? I shook my head, he was too late. I would have froze to death. He pounded the table again and sent more glass flying.

He grabbed a broom and dustpan from the opposite corner of the room. Slowly his shoes turned towards the broken glass and he kneeled to sweep it into the dust pan. He scooped the glass into the trash and he turned back to the table and his elbow must have knocked it down because a bottle fell. I heard him curse again and I realized as it rolled what it contained.

Project Goal: To get a first draft of a romance/contemporary novel.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: A story that was going to be based off a couple of characters in my head that were supposed to be a comic. Then I realized I need a story before I actually draw it. lol

Thoughts of the Week

Total Words This Week: 8,829

Decided to list some of my thoughts I've had during the week to give you a little more insight on my progress and/or struggles.

  • Had caught up and wrote over the word count at one point for Countdown #1 but on Thursday I needed to take a break for mental health reasons.
  • Slowly catching up on WYDM?! This story is taking me on a crazy ride and I'm trying to catch everything it's throwing at me.
  • Tweaked these posts making my weeks end on Thursdays instead of Fridays because I haven't written anything by the point I'm ready for the posts to go up. Edits all previous posts to reflect the correct numbers. Excerpts and pictures remain the same.
  • Still undecided for my project for July's Campnano at the moment.
  • Unrelated to writing, I've been looking into online writing groups and CPs. Always looking for good reliable beta readers as well so shoot me an email if you're interested!
