We are now halfway through the month. As my good friend Sam pointed out to me last night I could write two novels in the month. I’m good but I’m not that good. I was saying to Ali last night that it is good to work with the pressure on. I’ve told so many people that I’m doing this that there is no way I would dare lose face by not achieving it.
The fact of the matter is that Visions Of Violet will not be exactly 50,000 words long. I can already see that I’m going over. The chapter I’m working on is already over the proposed word count I devised per chapter, and I’ve decided to add in an extra chapter anyway.
I did see that one of my ‘writing buddies’ on the site has 60k already. Well done to them but please, go get some air.
Last night I went to see some friends perform improvised comedy. It was brilliant. It’s amazing to see how they can form jokes and ideas out of nothing. It’s something I don’t really give enough respect to when we are working together.
Right. Must write. Must win. Bye.
