WiP issues this week: This week it seemed like every word was a struggle. I have an outline but I'm still not sure if it's "enough". But, this is pretty much it. I'm almost finished "draft zero". But Steph, it's only 30k. Yes, yes, I realize that. My goal before I query this is 50k and I always add about 15k in revisions. That just how my mind works. I get the bare-bones of the story on the page, then revise to add in everything I've missed. So for now, I think I'm going to do one read-through to add in some brief things that I've missed then let it sit for a while so that I can see everything I'm missing. I already know of a few more scenes I want to add, just not where in the story, so those might get written separately, or I'll wait until I go back for revisions.
What I learned: How to push through. My mind wasn't cooperating this week, but I made sure write a little bit every day even if it was only 500 words.
What distracted me: My own want to be finished draft zero. I would stare at the page and just think about how much I wanted to be done, lol.
