Right. The first week of my AlphaBook Project is (nearly) up.
I'm pleased with my progress so far. My target was 5,000 words a week, and I confess I didn't quite get there this week - I'm at 4,006 words. I could carry on plugging away at it into this evening and get there, but I've written a lot already today and it's starting to feel sloggy, so I think it's best to stop. I could do with some time with my beloved AlphaBloke :-)
Besides, I'm ok with being 1,000 words down this first week. I ended up doing character work for an evening when I realised there was a gaping hole in my story structure, which obviously took some of my writing time. It was vital that I did it and it helped unblock me, so it was an evening well-spent. I'm pleased with what I've got so far, too. I'm moving forward.
The next week's shaping up to be a nightmare for writing, though. I have a crazy week at work, a couple of evenings out, and an event that will take up most of the weekend. I might start seeing what I can knock out on the commute.
I'm off to look for a good poem to post as AlphaPoem of the Week tomorrow!
