TOTAL WORDS: 39,021
REASON FOR STOPPING: Ran out of time!
WORDS FOR THE WEEK: 5214 (including writing for Wyrd)
Before I get into specifics on White Horse, for the week as a whole including the writing I did for Wyrd at the beginning of the week, got a total of 5214 words written for the week, which is a pretty amazing feat in itself. Wrapped up work on my other manuscript Wyrd for a while (you can find out why here), and now it’s full steam ahead with White Horse.
Moved the story along another significant part this week and cracked the 39,000 word mark, as well as the 180-page mark. I find the book growing and growing as I get into different characters and into different ways of life in this post-apocalyptic world and then I get to a point where I have to mention an important topic like food, government or religion, and then have to have an aside of some sort to explain how this particular topic works in my world at the moment. It’s sure fun to then come up with a way to make it work, that may get changed in future re-writes once the first draft is done, but at least works for the story for now.
