Day 22 of Novel – Getting back on target
So, as far as I can work out, Akismet is still blocking most of my comments on other sites. They replied to my original query this morning and seem to be as baffled as I am. I’ve now filled out a second form for them and they’re looking into it; I remain hopeful that it will be taken care of soon. If nothing else, this does highlight the need for us all to check our spam folders every once in a while: as good as Akismet usually is, it’s still an automated system and so is bound to make mistakes from time to time.
But enough about that. Onto the novel-writing progress.
Today was another good day, writing-wise. Although I started quite a bit later than I’d have liked, I eventually managed over 1.5k before deciding to call it quits. My average seems to be slowly creeping up again. At this rate I might even hit my original target of 1000 words a month; at the moment, I’m at just over 850.
Tomorrow’s scene, by the way, is the scene in which my parasitic character finally gets their act together. This scene marks the end of the novel’s first act and so I consider it to be something of a major milestone. In order to celebrate said milestone, I’ll be posting something a little…different once I’ve reached it, which will probably be before the end of tomorrow.
In the meantime, happy writing 🙂
