Day one hundred seventy-seven of my 365 Day Writing Project.
As a writer, I’m so easy to please these days. I began Chapter 20 tonight and just about did a jig to celebrate. Why? Because when I outlined this book many months ago I envisioned it to be around twenty chapters in length. I am getting close to the end of the story and here it is, right around my mark. That makes me happy. Like I said, easy to please.
I expect things to change a lot after the first draft, including the number of chapters. I’m already thinking about the re-writing and revising stage. I’m even looking forward to it. Now that I am in the twenties, I feel that much closer to it. It’s probably an odd milestone to acknowledge, but a milestone it is.
