Enjoy the Ride

Untouched word count @ 33,200.

Wee! Nothing like staying up all night to write, write, write, and write some more.

Although, I'm not 100% sure the last bit I wrote made any sense. :/ Guess I'll have to figure that out after a good night of sleep. Though I am getting to a part of my story where it just flows really well.

The characters have taken a life of their own! They are driving the story. In this case I find myself kicking back and relaxing.

Of course, I am a little nervous letting them take over. But hopefully they won't drive my story off a cliff.



  1. That's the best part, when the characters get their own personality, and take it away. Just beware, they may ruin many or all of the chapters written before life was breathed in their lungs.

    I'm happy you kept going. Go ahead and read through the writer's forums and blogs, and I think you'll find that most published writers push through to the end, and then go back to revise. Just keep notes on what you want to change about what you want to change about the chapters previously written.

    Good luck.

  2. Hi, I came across your blog while surfing the net. I'm also a writer and just wanted to say congrats on all your progress!
