Well done!

I'm going to take a page out of your book, lol, and step up with more words on paper, a little every day :)

Hey ~ that is a great way of looking at it!! I have decided i dont care that i am going to falll short on the word count. I already know that there are a lot of things i will be adding in the revision, and not a lot to take out, so I know that when it is finally done it will have the 100,000 words i am looking for!

 Quoting: K.Kool


Hi Kool! That sounds awesome, and yes, a few words every day is a great way to do it. It only took a few days for it to become habit, and those few words add up so quickly! I have been doing this for a month now, and the end is in sight already - at least for the rough draft. Next comes first revision, where i really give it my all, and then i will be sending copies out to a few family members for feedback, and making a final revision based on their notes. Then i will be sending it out to agents, and the hardest part of all will begin - THE WAITING GAME!! I am not a patient person, never have been. I think there will be nothing to do but send it out, and then forget about it. I will probably get started right away on book two to help keep me distracted!!
Good luck with your writing, feel free to share here, progress, teaser screenshots, lol, advice or anything else.

43,000, the end is ever closer. Hoping to get to at least 75k in the rough draft though, if there is to be any way of getting to the 100k in the final cut!

i would take a bow if i had such a smilie, lol.
I am just so anxious to see the first draft finished. Poverty is also a great motivator. Not like i am going to get rich quick with this, but when pennies are running low, and i feel down about it, i just feel like i need to be doing something productive. Something with at least the pretense of potential. Trying hard not to feel like a burden to my poor husband!!

*update: 45,000 words - about the halfway mark of my goal! If i was a drinker, I think tonight i would break open the bubbly, simply because I almost gave up this week.*

chuckle

no, my sweet husband isn't an ass or anything. But he knows how much i likes my glp. So, when I complained about not having the time to finally write this book I have been putting off, he kindly (and timidly) suggested that if I didn't spend so much time CT-porning, I would have the time needed to actually write.

So, now i think i shall compromise by turning glp into a "resource", hahaha!

So, anyone else out there struggling to get the words out? Any success in overcoming writer's block? Any hurdles, struggles, successes?

Maybe we creative writers could have a little cheer leading thread to help keep us going. And also, when we do give in to temptation and log in, this thread in our "recent threads" might shame us into making our visits a little shorter so we can get back to our masterpieces!!

And if GLP is "helping" me out, then he can hardly complain, can he?

WOW!! Writer's block sucks so very much! It has been a hard week or two, trying to force myself to write. The words would just not come. I would sit here time after time and stare at the blinking cursor, and nothing would happen. It didnt help that I have been so sick. Still am, but my brain is not as foggy as it has been. I have been struggling a lot with doubts. Thinking I am just so stupid for thinking I could do something so awesome as succeed where so many people fail. Thinking I would better serve my family by going out and getting some menial job, even though I would suffer physically for it. But I made it back today. I am writing again, and I think I can make it over this black cloud of fear that is looming over me!
So I am most pleased to report that I am up to 46,000 words and still going. I have never written so much before, so feeling a little proud today!

haha - thanks for the applause! More than halfway even! This rough draft is going to fall very short of the 100k word count. But in the second revision it is getting fattened up quite a bit so I am not worried. I think the rough draft is going to end up at about 60 - 70k. I am hoping to get as much as 80, but I am not sure how much of the story is left. Time will tell - but yes, the end is in sight!!!

I wonder how you think "great literature" is made? Is writing a novel anything besides putting words down? My word count is simply to be sure i stay within the guidelines set by agents and publishers.
I would say you seem far less likeable than I, so I will enjoy proving you wrong.
