Hello, friends! Before I get rolling on the bloggity blog post I would like to express my deep love for post-Easter candy sales. Never is there a better time to indulge in the awesomeness of some Cadburry caramel eggs (not creme, because those are disgusting). Partake and be merry!
Anyways, to the writey stuff!
So I’m trying this whole three-posts-a-week thingy and so far I’m rocking and rolling along. This will be post numero three–or maybe two? I’m not sure–and I feel like doing things this way will be 2 legit 2 quit. Yeah, that was an MC Hammer reference. Get into it.
The benefits of this blog schedule are the bomb biggety so far. See, I’ve been able to work on my book a smidge more which is totally bitchin’. Plus, now I don’t have the dial on my brain machine cranked all the way to BLOG so I can dedicate more time to planning out how my story is going to roll. I know, you’re totally jelly.
As for the book, I’m trucking like an eighteen-wheeler with some naked lady mudflaps. The plot has only seen a few hiccups so far but I’m thinking things are going to stay smooth from here on out. Seeing as I’ve already done plotted an arsenal of drama bombs, all I really need to do now is make one event roll into another. Take heed, Evil Manuscript! For I come to smite thee with mine tapping fingers!
There is one teensy weensy thing that has been itching in my head though. When I set out to do the damn thing I figured I should shoot for around 80,000 words as a final word count, but now I’m wondering if 70,000 isn’t just as good of a number. You already know I’ve never published a novel so I’m just going off what I’ve read in the wilds of the Internets, but who knows if any of that hokey pokey is any good? If anybody has a nugget of wisdom to drop I’d welcome it.
