I’m actually not sure, to be honest… normally weekends are bad for me in general, so how I came to get 3,000 words out yesterday is something of a miracle. A much welcomed one, but a miracle all the same!
It means I want to make 45K by the end of today… and I think I can do it… (it’ll also mean I should get started sooner rather than later though, just to make sure 😉 ).
But it’s good, and I am enjoying it, and it won’t be long before I am halfway through the story. I still haven’t done that planning yet, but I have the ideas there it’s just a matter of placing them on the page. I have to go back and add some bits to something I wrote yesterday, bulk it out a little, and that will tie in with the second POV which is being introduced today. I am confident that will happen within the next 2,000 words so it should be today.
I’ve been reading Steven King’s Danse Macabre the last week or so, slowly making my way through it. It’s a good read, even though it’s based on horror between the 1950’s and the 1970’s, so before my time really. It would be awesome if he wrote a new one on the changes in the field since then.
I’d love to write horror. I love reading the stuff, but I guess I have always thought I’d stuff it up if I tried writing it – that said, there are a couple of short stories which fall into the bracket, and I do like the way they are turning out/have turned out.
One day, I will definitely try my hand at a horror novel. But until then I guess it’s fantasy for me.
