Writing Update – 15k Words!

I have reached a little over 15,000 words. I’d like to hit 20,000 by the end of the day.

I should probably note that…I haven’t eaten all day. Bad plan. I’ll definitely take a break and eat dinner in an hour or so. I didn’t realize I was hungry until I got an email regarding work.

I’ve been trying to wait for the ten people in my neighbourhood to stop mowing their lawns, so that I can do some recording. The show I’m in (it’s a puppet show), was supposed to be performed for Mother’s Day but obviously didn’t happen, so lines are being recorded remotely and my director is going to try and put the performance online. I’m excited to see it.

I’m curious about the animation I completed back at the end of 2019. I’m really excited for its release but I have a feeling its been delayed because of Covid. I really miss the cast and crew from that. Everyone at that studio is super nice and sweet (plus there’s this restaurant next door with amazing smoothies).

I really, really miss recording.

Sorry for that random little tidbit, back to my writing update!

So I’m a little over 15,000 words now and I told myself that today I’d reach my halfway point. If my goal was 30,000 that would be great, but it’s not, so I’ve still got a lot of work ahead of me. I’m writing something that’s a bit new for me…especially in terms of some of the subject matter, but I am proud to say that I’m connecting with my characters now! I was worried during my last writing session, but now I feel like I’ve found their voices. I may have to go back to early chapters and fix some things when I edit, but that is what editing is for. Right now, all I want to do is write to my hearts content.

Of course I have to record for this play, so I’ll need to warm up my voice for that and go do my takes. Hopefully I can do this soon. I don’t eat certain things before recording (like dairy or spicy food).

Hopefully I get to 20,000 words by the end of the day!
