Starting a story, code named Shift. I’ve only written just under 2000 words so far.
They are 2000 very shitty words, but it’s my first draft and I just want to get the basic skeleton down on paper. I very much under write in first drafts and have to come back later to add in the description to make the stories come to life. That is why my first draft’s goal is 50,000 words. I’m thinking that the final draft will be 80-90k. I already have notes as to how the first two chapters need to be fleshed out more.
I’m also doing something a bit different so far. I have no plan. I like working to an outline. Right now I’m not, I’m just writing. Just a bit of an experiment. However, I can sort of feel how I soon will need to write out some kind of rough outline.
It would be nice to have a draft complete by September. Fingers crossed. Keep working on it Carlie, do it!
