20.000 in 6

6 Comments

Uh, WOW!
The big news is, a pitch was accepted for a story, and I have to deliver the first draft by September the 1st.
That’s 20.000 words tops, in six days.
Roughly 3500 good words per day.

I know I can make it – the pitch was accepted based on a pretty solid outline, so I know what’s going to happen, where, how, to whom.
It’s basically just a matter of sticking to schedule and do the mechanical work of pouring the story out of my somewhat overexcited brain, and onto Scrivener.

But I am happy as a child, because this is a HUGE opportunity, and it’s going to be lots of fun.
And hard work.

If you see my blog activity slack in the next days, you know the reason why.
But I’ll try and keep you posted.
Wish.
Me.
Luck.
