That little bit of writing is really starting to add up! Over the past week and a half, I have written over 5000 words - 2500 more than my goal for the same period of time. Sure they're not all golden, Pulitzer prize winning sentences, but the thoughts are there. It's the getting it down on paper that counts - editing comes later. In all, I am up to over 12,000 words in total - this includes the existing story I had started writing a couple of years ago. I'm a long way off giving sneak peeks, but the basic gist is of a fiction novel that covers the first year of motherhood. The main character struggles for some time before being diagnosed with post natal depression - the reader will be privy to both before and after that period of time. The trick for me, as the writer, is to ensure that I produce something that's engaging, realistic and - most importantly - something that people want to read. Fingers crossed!
