Musing: Going too Well

Day 6 Word count:  15,868

crest_square-1902dc8c2829c4d58f4cd667a59f9259My goal is 55,000 words over 25 chapters.   I have an outline laid out to keep me on track.   And everything is going great.

So why am I worried?

Something I’ve learned over the past two years of writing is that feeling good about your work usually leads to reading it later and hating it.   In this case I haven’t started the publication dreams or anything ridiculous like that.   This is a lesser evil.   I expected to run into road blocks, plot holes and slogging dialogue by the 10k word mark.   But I haven’t.   I stay cautiously optimistic that it is because of my hard work over the past two years.  Over time I’ve written a metric crap ton of short stories / web serials.   Perhaps I simply can gauge exactly what needs to be done and just do it.   Obviously there will be revisions to do.   Typos, confusing lines, and description polish is a part of making a manuscript readable.

Only time will tell.

On a side note, I am working on a map for TWO DESTROYERS.   I saw a really neat one made with Photoshop and it made me realize…  I’m pretty good at it myself.   A map should be easy.   I’ll post it as soon as I get it done (assuming it doesn’t interfere with my NaNoWriMo Drive.

I’ve written a short story for Friday as well: A Day with Mr. Bentley.  Those that are regulars on the site might notice when I do this I post it in my public folder as soon as I finish it.   Meaning if you check it often, you can get an exclusive early peek.
