I have not yet written today’s pages, so I’m reporting on progress as of close of play yesterday. Today is going to be tough like the other days this week, maybe tougher.
My page count is 42 (8.5x11) and I think 40 of those are full pages of content. I have a 43rd page started but it only has one line on it, hardly worth reporting.
Diego wrote above exactly the way I feel! I’m not where I expected to be, I’m further ahead, but not a whole lot so in my case. Like Diego, this is the longest time I’ve written on a project continuously, every single day, and the process is giving me some confidence I have not had before. What my particular writing project is worth in the long run, though, I can’t say. It’s hard for me to tell how useful the content really is today or will be 20 years from now. I’m gaining a lot of insights into the people I work with daily though. That’s because my book characters are based on them.
What are my next steps? I will review the book over the weekend, there should be plenty of reading and thinking time available. Then I’ll go from there. I really don’t know if I will submit a book proposal or not.
What I’m sure about is that I’m learning interesting things from everyone participating in PragProWriMo, including Dave. (Smile.) I even have yerba mate tea on the shelf now after listening enough to Diego.
Happy weekend to everyone!
