Overall, that makes it 2,640 words and only about 6oo or so words are actually on the story I will (hopefully) be writing for the rest of the month. The reason for that, and the lack of updates, is because I was not feeling the original Santa story. I just couldn’t settle into it.
I have spoken in my last Writing Update that I’d had a wobble over the story and I now think this was my subconscious, if you will, warning me that the story was not ready to be written. It needed more time to mature. The other story however is a complete rewrite overhaul of my November 2013 story so that bit easier to write and I can write it how I feel it needs to be done. That does mean I am going in as a pantser once again. Not entirely but mostly. I really do need to start listening to myself properly when I am writing. I am behind (though I am keeping the original words) so have more work to do but I am happier writing this story. So it is good, I suppose, as I am more likely to keep going.
How are things going for you? Are you behind? Ahead? Have you had any problems? Here’s hoping you are having a good November.
