Minimal written due to life so just going to be quick.

The main gist of what has happening in those thousand words or so that I have written is that my FMC came home to find her mother unable or unwilling to care for herself without permission from another person and has basically had to be the head of the household whilst also deciding she needed to investigate her family’s new cult and disrupt it to stop her step father from summoning Gods.

50k is definitely not going to happen this month but the rest of the words I need to be on par for the year, possible with a lot of work. My aim for now though is just to get writing again. Life has had to take priority recently.

How’s your writing going? Better than mine I hope! Any winners yet? Hope you are having fun.

Not a bad start to November considering how busy life has been as of late. Nearly forgot about doing this until I needed a way to procrastinate having hit a slight wall.

In basic, the month has started with some unexpected possible foreshadowing, musings about one of the characters and my FMC’s mother now being a gibbering wreck under her now cult leader husbands control. My FMC and her mum were then dumped at the dirty, unoccupied and trashed former family home and the rest of the family, now cult, going to live in their compound, aka field. My FMC has had to become the adult of the house as she tries to clean and make the house liveable whilst relying on a local church food bank to get food and basic living items for them thanks to her stepfather giving them no money to spend. She has also learnt what has happened in her absence.

As you might be able to tell, much of this has happened on the fly as I have written but it does fit for now and I want to keep going until I finish the draft at least. Word count wise, I figured out I need to write 12,800 words this month to be on target for the rest of the year. My current word count means I am ahead of where I need to be based on that target. This is partly because of how busy life is so have not written for a few days. I am happy though with my progress.

How’s your writing going this month? Ahead or chasing? Had any unexpected surprises? Keeping on track with your plan? Do comment below if you wish.
