I have this terrible habit of writing a portion of the draft and knowing that it probably won’t make it to the final manuscript. Mind you, that doesn’t stop me. I typically keep writing and simply acknowledge that I will see the paragraphs again someday as they hit the cutting room floor. This week was filled with that terrible habit.
Weekly Word Count Goal: 5000
New Words for Modern Mythology: 378
New Words for Coming of Age: 4859
Total New Words Written: 5237
So I did meet my 5000 new word goal, but it is unclear how many of those words will appear in the final product. I should probably mind the ‘wasted’ effort more than I do, but if nothing else, writing these invisible portions of who my characters are and what kind of world they live in.
And who knows? Maybe this week I’ll write some words with a bit more staying power.
Greater miracles have happened.
