I honestly can't believe that a whole week has flown by. I knew going into it that my week will not be as productive because husband works days this week so I don't have that many evenings free to work on the story. But it's still a little disappointing to see the numbers. However, in the grand scheme of things, I still met my goal of writing at least 1 pomodoro a day. This is why writing with word count goals does not work for me!
Stats for this week are as follows:
7/9/16 - 7/15/16
7/9: 3 pomodoros
7/10: 4 pomodoros
7/11: 2 pomodoros
7/12: 2 pomodoros
7/13: 1 pomodoro (worked on my synopsis)
7/14: 2 pomodoros
7/15: 4 pomodoros
Completed roughly 2 chapters. I struggled a lot with a particular scene, so I spent one day working on my synopsis and query and figuring out where exactly the story is going. Resolved that, wrote the seance scene, so now it's full steam ahead towards the next part of the story.
Total word count right now is around 26,500 words, I'm at about 30% of the story revised, so I know there definitely needs to be some trimming of the fat in the first part of the story already.
My original goal was to revise the story enough so I can submit it to Pitch Wars on Aug 3, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen. Most of my blog posts are on hold until I can power through until the end of the month to see if Pitch Wars will be a possibility. I will still post my weekly updates to hold myself accountable!
