I had no idea how little I wrote this week until I sat down to write this update. That weekly total is…not good.

You would think that with how close I am to finishing, I would be more focused than ever. Instead, I have a case of senioritis. Now is no time to drop the ball though! I don’t have wiggle room anymore.

Most of the words I wrote this week were done with pen and paper, which has become pretty rare during this challenge. I can type or dictate much, much faster than I can handwrite and so it’s just not practical most of the time.

Still, there’s something really pleasant about writing in a notebook, particularly when I am brainstorming. Despite not having a big word count to show for it, I feel like this week was a very good week for writing. I did a good amount of brainstorming for the story I’m going to write after this challenge is all over.

But I can’t afford to lollygag here, so next week, I’m going to buckle down and get a lot of writing done.

Only two weeks left! Ah!

I’m an aspiring novelist who hasn’t quite figured out this whole writing thing. I’ve been scribbling down stories since I was a little kid, but only dared to dream that I could write something worth reading as I became an adult. At 33, I still feel like I have a lot of progress to make before I’m ready to try publishing, but I’m getting better every day. Typically I write Fantasy (of both the Adult and YA varieties), but I have dipped my toe in Romance and Sci-Fi. When coming up with a story to write, all I care about is that the plot grabs my attention and the characters tug at my heartstrings. The genre is an afterthought. I tend to set myself lofty goals. Mostly I fail, but occasionally I surprise myself and succeed. Either way, I enjoy being pushed beyond the limits of what I thought I could do. That’s what I’m hoping to accomplish with the Milwordy challenge. I may or may not reach the full million words, but I know I’m going to learn a lot along the way. I hope you will, too!
