Rediscovering the love of my current WIP.("I Knew Him")
I behaved like one of those mythical ostriches last year and stuck my head in the sand when I realised how complicated it was going to be to write and said "wah! I can’t do it!" but now I’ve pushed forward a couple of thousand words over the last week and the Protag has taken back over, it’s flowing better. But I do think that I’m going to be the only person who loves Harry.
Trouble is, I’m heading for 70k already, so I have no clue how long it will be. I don’t want to run the risk of skipping over the final third and get people tell me I rushed it. I know it’s a cheat, but if I can finish "I Knew Him" this year AND a 30k novella I’ll be satisfied for my year’s output.
But it is easy to get intimidated by other writers. One of my Twitter friends said (to someone else) that they wrote THREE novellas a MONTH.
