Today I’m writing among other things. I’m writing Act 3 of my novel and Its going to end in the 60k range. However, that is not what the final word count will be. I know this because when I do edits, I tend to add words. I look at it and realize that I saw everything play out in my head. Sights, sounds, smells. Then I read the page and what I saw isn’t on the page. I get to add that detail. I get to delve deeper into the characters. More action or in some cases actual settings are inserted in. But I am so very close to the ending and should get back to it.
I wanted to check in since it has been a little while. I did finally take my Christmas tree down and haul it off to the dumpster. It shed pine needles all over the place. It was a great tree, but I love having my dining room back. It’s a wonderful feeling. Plus space is an issue when one lives in an apartment.
Well, I had better get to my fight scenes. There is a lot going on and then I get to write the ending. One that I never thought would come after 5 years. Everyone have a wonderful day. And here’s another picture. Enjoy!
