I’m not entirely sure I’m done for the day, but I’m taking a break.
I reached 5,400 , though I’m not that far into my outline… at this pace who knows how long this book will be.
It’s really pretty awful at this point, I think. I have no sense of whether I’m actually capturing the mood, the setting, and the personalities that I have in my head.
I have introduced all three of the main viewpoint characters, I have initiated the bird flu scare (everyone loves a good crisis!), and I’ve gotten one of the three groups to the farm.
If I can get another 5,000 words down tomorrow AND move all of my characters to the rural farm where the rest of the story takes place, I think I’m on track for serious word count success.
So far, it’s like taking a little vacation in my head. How fun!
