I worked hard for about a week, and then WHAMMO...I haven't worked on it in four days!
My hiccups have been induced by having some awesome plot twisting ideas... and putting off making the changes. (I've been studying up on "raising the stakes" and character motivation)
I'm on my 8th draft. 8th.
And I just realized that I need to add two major threads to my story...
I had just successfully chopped my word count to:
79496 (which is still kind off long, I'm shooting for 75,000)
Bummer, because that's about to go back up. Here's me putting on my writing hat...and then back to the chopping block.
Yes. That is my thinking sombrero and my lucky machete.
