Weekly Writing Update 1

This Week's Word Count: 4,519
Total Current Word Count: 30,252

I've done a lot of things for my book in the past week, except for writing! I'm back in college, and it cost me some productivity. I am also incredibly sick right now, can't even get out of bed.

However, I've completed 1 of my 3 quarterly goals. I fully outlined my novel! Thank the lord I did, I found that many things between where I'm currently writing and the resolution needed to be thought of at once. Right now my concern is that the plot is too convoluted. I feel like the true arc of the novel starts too late, but that's for revisions!

Another thing I've done this week is watched all of Brandon Sanderson's lectures at BYU! Here is a link. They are incredibly informative and helpful, and I've written a lot of editing notes based off of his advice. Anyone interested in writing fantasy or science fiction should watch all the lectures, including Brandon Mull's and the Q&A. Watch it all!

My goal for the next week is to write a total of at least 3,000 words. College is definitely going to slow me down, this is a paper-heavy semester. I will not stop writing, though. I have a spreadsheet tracking my word count per day and week, and my cumulative average daily word count.

See you guys on Saturday!
