Lol, I think I like writing these book updates because it gives me an excuse to procrastinate and fuck off instead of actually working on my book
Anywho. The word count is up to 28,000 and I think that's pretty damn good considering we were babysitting my step-sister's 3 year old for a few days. She had my attention pretty tied up, so I didn't have any time to write while she was awake--and once she went to sleep, I was way too exhausted to write.
So yeah. Pretty surprised I managed to stack up 7,000 words.
I'm having my husband proofread it periodically to catch any typos and junk, which will hopefully cut down on my editing workload later and I can concentrate on revising the story instead of hunting for typos. Granted, it's Travis and he isn't exactly the most eagle-eyed reader, so I'll probably still have to weed out a handful of mistakes. But whatevs, it's still too early to worry too much about what's gonna happen in editing.
I'm about a third of the way into the story and, for the most part, I think what I've written so far probably reads like a romance novel. Or maybe a character study with heavy romantic undertones. I don't know. But that's pretty much what I intended, so it's all good. Plus, the fantasy is right around the corner. I'm really looking forward to diving into all that.
I'm also really looking forward to writing more scenes with my main antagonist. He's only been in one scene so far, and it was only for about a page, so I'm really itching for him to show up again. But yeah, again, no worries. As long as I don't haul off and change my outline, he'll be showing up in the chapter I'm about to write. Which should be fun.
Sooooo yeah, I'mma wrap this up now and get back to work :I
