I am exactly halfway through November and guess what? I just hit 25,000 words on my manuscript. Seriously. I had to push through to get there. So much for my big, sexy lead in the first week of November.
I am nowhere near the outline I started with… in fact, I’ve just introduced characters who apparently have NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the original outline. But I still think I can salvage this.
Except…. now I’m flying blind, my outline is in shambles, and my main character is DEAD. The last part might be a lie.
For the most part, I think I’m holding it all together very well. But I don’t have any clean underwear for work tomorrow.
