I'm currently trying to write a first draft of a new middle grade fantasy novel and the goal is to hit approximately 40k words this month. I'm hoping to write around 10k words a week for 4 weeks and so far I've stayed on goal!
This first week was hard because 1) Mother's Day, 2) my husband's birthday, 3) writing is hard! Plus, I don't have a clear outline for this book so every time I sit down to write, I have to figure out what's supposed to be happening!
Hopefully I'll be able to keep up this progress next week. This is always a really fun and challenging month!
