Oh dear, a third of the way through and things might not be going how you planned.

I’m still behind, but I’m closing the gap. I’ve written above the daily average ever day since my last update but I’ve only just crossed the halfway mark.

Things have picked up in the novel itself though, I’ve fallen into a nice routine of approaching each chapter like an individually crafted story. The results are mixed, but it leaves me with chapters that I feel hold up better and will be easier to rewrite later. My current average is predicting I’ll finish on December 10, but each day I bring that prediction a little bit closer. If I can get it down to only a day or two late, then I’m still confident I can cross that finish line in time.

How are you all doing? Crossed the 1/3 mark or lagging behind with me?

  • Keep going! I fell behind when I didn’t write for a week. Fortunately was able to catch up overact weekend 🙂

  • I’m lucky in that I haven’t fallen any further behind than I’ve always been, but it’ll be a tough day 30.
