WIP: Week Three

Hey! How are you today?

Mostly, this week was cool and productive, but a few frustrating things managed to get in the way. And all of them happen to be because people can be so downright nasty nowadays. There's just too much arrogance and self-important selfish crap going on. There's not enough sympathy and empathy. And that's before considering that most people can't take constructive criticism. 🙄

Also, you might have noticed that I've dropped the 'NaNoWriMo' from my blog post subject line. That's not by accident, it's very much intentional. The other day I heard some disturbing news about their message boards, a moderator, and the staff who didn't care that teenagers were being groomed. It's so gross and I want nothing to do with this anymore, which is such a shame for someone who's been taking part for years.

If you want to know a bit more about what's going on, here's an informative video about everything.

Anyway, here's this week's word count:
  • Monday: 47,131w (added 4,299w)
  • Tuesday: 52,126w (added (4,995w)
  • Wednesday: 56,1561w (added 4,035w)
  • Thursday: 62,674w (added 6,513w)
  • Friday: 65,736w (added 3,062w)
Although I reached the 50k target on Tuesday, I kept writing because the story wasn't done yet. 

I actually got to The End last night, but had to go back today to re-read what I wrote because I had to add a few extra details. I also wrote an extra chapter and tidied up a few things. Yay.

I'm very happy with how this story turned out. As usual, there were quite a few surprises and some unexpected messages and character traits that add more depth to the story. I have to admit that it doesn't reflect the initial idea I had, but that's not a bad thing because this violent, toxic story is a much better version. I'm really looking forward to revising this one, but that won't be until next year.

Well, that's about it.

Have an awesome weekend!!
