Word Count

Wrapped up with a total of around 1,300 today so that puts the grand total at 28, 130.

Something happened, though. I'm not sure what to make of it. I was sure I knew where this story was going, I had the end in sight and then in a hotel in St. Louis, things changed. Everything changed and the story isn't what it was.

I feel like I'm starting at square one again.

I realize I have to keep writing, I know the story will come out. But I'm pretty dumbfounded right now.

What else can I even say?

You just can't trust characters these days.

haha. I love what Jenny said.
I started the sequel to my manuscript...that's right, not even published yet, but my characters couldn't sit still...and then I decided I should change a huge part of the plot in the first one. You just never know where you'll find yourself at the end of a story! Miss your comments....hope you're having a great Christmas Season!

Funny how that happens. Remember what you pal, Stephen King says: the story already exists; you're just digging it up/discovering it, right? What a process. But the main thing is YOU ARE WRITING. Good for you. You got 1,300 more words than me down today!!

You are doing awesome! And you are letting the characters lead you. That is what a good writer does.
