Quick apologies for not posting sooner. Been very distracted so things have dropped by the wayside. Oops. Time to catch up then. In saying that, I’ve not had a bad start to the month.

As I said in my earlier post, I am experimenting with writing scenes out-of-order so I have ended up writing one of the ending scenes where my FMC is with her siblings and cousins for possibly the last time and meets her father for the first time. It’s clunky at best but it’ll do for now as a first draft. After finishing that, I moved back to where I had left off at the end of June with my characters on the train meeting and got some words written but I think I may need to skip past it a little with just a note and move to writing the sorting bit and the school introduction and stuff. So more description, more introductory stuff but it’s words, it’s world building and it is a first draft, sort of.

Who knows? It might give me a buffer and might propel me towards my 5k target. Considering I need to write around 13k words to get back on track for the year, it could be a good idea that I am about to write so much exposition.

How is everyone else going? Taking the month off after Camp or trying to keep the momentum going? Here’s hoping you are well and that I find some motivation. It seems to have run off somewhere.
