It Flowed

I got up at 4 AM and started typing and just finished 3,131 words or close to it. The important thing is is that my story grew into a good peak for the ending. It somehow flowed in the direction it needed to go! Sweet victory is around 3,270 words. It feels like I’m going to complete this challenge on time and still have a pretty good draft. I’ll now have to pull it all together and honestly I may need a little more than the 3, 131 words, and isn’t that grand!

With this month long challenge I have found that the words, the story, will come to  me in a quiet room without distractions. I have found that I can write a complete novel, draft that is, packed with action and twists for entertainment. I can’t wait for the next challenge next November! I can’t wait to read what I’ve written.

Macon, my main character, is about to be put in a serious position and he will have to make a choice that could alter his future. I’ll know which way he’ll go by morning, my morning that is. My story has come together, sweat and tears included. I’m happy with the results to boot. Just a few more thousand or so words.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
