Today I surpassed the word count needed for today. My novel is just over 17,000 and I still have a bit to go until I get to the end of this one section. I know how I envisioned this story when I started it but I don’t think it is taking the turn that I wanted but a far different turn than expected. With that being the case, I’m not sure if this book will reach 50,000 words, which is not good. I need to figure out something, so I think I will take the time to do that. Just hope I can come up with something that works for the best.
I originally started writing this novel as a testament to my Christian journey talking about some of the trials I have been through and how God has gotten me through them. The problem is, with each trial, they could either be sections in a book, or books on their own. I’m not sure which way I want to go with them. I am think I am liking a less cluttered approach and may use each trial as a new book…hmmm but then I think that may take away from what I was trying to do with this book. (sighs) I guess I’ll just type the whole manuscript up and decide from there. Maybe that is the better way to go. See it as a whole manuscript first and then see how I like it. If I leave it as a whole manuscript then I should be able to reach if not surpass the 50,000 by the end of the month. That would be cool! Guess we’ll see what happens.
How is everyone else doing? Are you making your word count each day? Best of luck to everyone!
