the writer's edition: month 13 check-in
It's been fantastic to realise that while I don't feel as though I've written an enormous amount, I've added over 6000 words since the start of April - amazing! The main time I'm able to sneak in a bit of writing is between breakfast and my shower. By then, Tom has left the house and there's quite a stretch before Sophie leaves for school. There's usually some kind of chaos going on in the background, made easier if Jono and Soph are playing in one of the bedrooms, however I don't always have that luxury!
This next month's goal - apart from the ever-growing word count - is to keep working with my main characters and letting them take me where they want to go. Currently they're acting as joint narrators, however I'm not sure whether this will happen in the final draft - it's something I'll continue with for now and see how it evolves. There's also a cast of minor characters that changes to suit the storyline - I wonder how many of them will make the final cut?!
Until next month...
