Update – 27/11/2022

I was very optimistic at the beginning of November about hitting the 50K word count target on the story I’m writing (currently titled Once), but now as the month is coming to an end I don’t think I’ll be hitting that target. I’ll be close and I’ll let you know how I do on December 1st. There’s just not enough time in the day for everything, and work and not feeling great got in the way.

I haven’t really read that much this month, which is going to my big focus in December once I’ve finished with writing. I want to take a break before I go back and edit the story, so I’m going to just focus on reading for December, finish up another writing project in January, and then come back to Once to start editing hopefully in February.

On top of that this morning I woke up after a dream, that was pretty much a fully fledged story in itself. I don’t normally remember dreams, but this one was so vivid in my mind that I made notes straight away before it started to fade. It’s similar to The Creature from the Black Lagoon, which is probably my favourite Universal Monster Movie, competing with the 1931 Dracula. I have the beginning, middle and ending. I’m hoping to get started with actually writing it after editing Once. It’s a great feeling to have so many ideas and am excited to start actually writing them, which is actually what I’m going to go and do now.

Thanks for reading and until next time,
