I’ve stuck to writing 2000 words a day. Kind of anyway. I’ve gone over three times now. And today I broke my record for most words written in one day. 6000 words. I’m incredibly happy about that. Not just because I did it, but I didn’t burn out at all. I could carry on right now. I have the next scene in my head. The only reason I’m not is because I’m starting to feel tired.

The current story I’m writing was originally going to be around 24000 words long. There will be a second part, of I suppose around the same size. I don’t think this part will be over in 24000 words. I also hit 20000 today. The best place to be in a story as I find it’s when the momentum of the story takes over and writing becomes so much easier. I know I’m reaching the end, of this part but I think it will go over. Not by much, maybe 2000 words. There is a reason why it’s important I don’t go too far over. I will explain more in the new year when things have been finalised. I don’t want to jinx it. Sorry about that, but bare with me.

I am incredibly happy for breaking my record today while also reaching that 20000 milestone. It’s been a good day. 

While I’ve been writing this story I’ve been grabbing Fall Out Boy cds at random and playing through them. I’ve also been putting them back randomly and now they are out of order. That will be fixed soon. My favourite two albums are Infinity on High and Save Rock and Roll. The others have good songs on them, but there are too many songs I want to skip. 

I’m off to play some Castlevania and then bed. I will post again soon,

Thanks for reading,
