Lilly Avalon Monthly Writing Update #11 for March 2021

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 No comments

Every month I share an update about what I'm writing in my Monthly Writing Update!
Here's the latest for the month of March.

If you look at my February update, my main goal was to write 7500-10,000 words in my WIP.

Have I accomplished this?

Unfortunately, I didn't, but I did manage to get just 6,103 words (as of last night), so that still feels great! There were, of course, several ups and downs as well as days I simply didn't want to write, but I still managed to get a decent number of words written. This story has had some slight changes along the way, so the original outline has been adapted a bit here and there. The main story still remains the same, but there are new scenes being added as I go.

My total for this book is currently sitting at 10,874, which means I've broken the 10k barrier for revealing the title to my Facebook group! If you want to see what it is, join my group.

Goals for April

April is Camp NaNoWriMo! I'll be participating again this year. Last year I had the goal of writing 12,000 words to finish writing Seducing the Star and I managed to finish writing it in fewer words. While I didn't hit the goal for Camp NaNo last year, it was still an accomplishment.

My goal for the month is 10,000 words. I've decided to aim low, but still higher than I did in March. At 10k, I need to do 334 words a day, which I feel is manageable for me. I can knock out that in one sprint on a good day, plus easily make up for lost days by doing two or three sprints! If you're participating in Camp NaNoWriMo next month, let's become buddies on the website!

If I can get 10k next month, that will mean I'll be about halfway through writing this book. I haven't decided what my goals for May are just yet, but there's a good chance I'll aim to finish the book if I feel confident enough.

If you want to keep up with my progress, I'll be posting occasionally on my social media about it, so be sure to follow me.

Love you all lots! Take care, everybody!
