I’m at ~110,000 words with this first draft of the first novel in what is projected to be a five novel project. And, for some reason, writing these last few scenes are a real struggle.
Some of it is I want to rush through these last few scenes, and, yet, I don’t want to. I don’t want to because I have so much slack in my schedule of development that I don’t have to rush — I still have all of May to wrap up the last few final scenes.
But they say the first draft is meant to be a your “vomit draft” so I need to get over the hump and just write something, anything, so I can turn my attention not just to other books in the series but reading a lot.
Anyway, I need to just do it. I need to get over myself and just wrap up this first draft. Yet is comforting that I’m ahead of schedule and I have a week or two where I can kind of chill out and not force myself to write if I don’t want to.
