I hit 627 words today. The story is resolutely refusing to shift from being a tender coming of age love story set against a backdrop of an impending flood and recent political upheaval – which all sound very worthy, but this is me so, less so.
Tomorrow I will have a good clear spell where I hope to sit with a pad and pen and doodle my way to a coherent through line for this story. Right now there are too many options and they all want to spiral off into their own mini-epic.
I must stay on target. A completed first draft by the end of the month! I’m currently sitting with 2k words, but they aren’t all in a straight line.
