Current WIP: Week Four

Welcome to my fourth current WIP update!

This week was a strange and busy one. For starters, this was my daughter's last week of school. Ever. On Thursday, we went to her high school graduation assembly.

Asides from her HSC exams next month, she's pretty much done with school. I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that I have a daughter who will turn 18 in October. 😁


This was also the last week of September. And that was my deadline for getting my WIP completed.

Here's how my w/c turned out:

Monday:  65,739 (added 4210w)
Tuesday:  71,343 (added 5604w) 
Wednesday:  76,327 (added 4984w)
Thursday:  (Daughter graduated HS)
Friday:  77,820w (added 1493w)

There it is! The first draft is now DONE. Yay.

I actually reached The End on Wednesday afternoon. But, because this week's writing sessions were crazed word frenzies, I wanted to go back a bit and add more meat to the bones.

I'm really happy with how this story turned out.

As I've mentioned before, this is an idea that's been swirling around inside my head for months. It deals with one of my favourite Greek mythological monsters, but it takes place today.

Another thing I had fun with was writing this novel in mutiple third-person POV. It had been a while since I'd done that, since my other horror novels were written in first person.

Now I have to sort through my notes and put everything away. Until revision time, of course.

So, what's next? Well, I'd like to rest, read and maybe write a short story. Maybe. Oh, and it's time to start thinking about NaNoWriMo...💭 But there'll be more thinking than anything else, because hubby's having two weeks off very soon and there'll be no writing then. 😊

Anyway, that's it for now. 

Have a great weekend! Ours is a long one because Monday is a public holiday.

See ya!
