I’ve got 10,965 words to write before I reach 50,000. I’m going to write around 5k words each day of the weekend (today and Sunday) in order to finish early. Next week is the last week of classes, and I’ve got two exams, so Monday is going to be reserved strictly for studying and getting the last homework assignments done.
I wrote 7k yesterday (and most of that was done in 4 hours), so I’m not concerned about my ability to write 5k two days in a row. I’m more concerned about my wrists and arms getting sore, which they definitely were last night.
It looks like my novel won’t be finished in 50k. Considering 50k is at the lower end for a novel, I suppose that’s a good thing. I just need to figure out where my novel is going – I know the end, but I’m not entirely sure how to get there.
