As I was doing this year’s Know the Novel, I had the idea to start my own linkup. Since most of the Know the Novel linkups are about the writing process and story, I thought I’d do something different and create a linkup to talk about our MCs (main characters)!
Hi friends! This post is going to be my last one until the New Year. I’ve been pretty busy with school, so I’m excited to have the next couple of weeks off to spend time with my family, read a ton of history + plan for my biography paper, organize all my school books, read Brandon Sanderson, write my novel, and catch up on all my letter writing.
Oh, and celebrate Jesus’ birth. *cough* That too.
Unfortunately, with all of the busyness and crazy stuff this year, I keep forgetting the most important part of Christmas. WELL, that stops today, because today I’m talking about Christmas to all of you!
I’m also going to be doing Christine’s Know the Novel linkup, but since I only wrote 10k in November and haven’t gotten back to the story much since then, I don’t have a ton to say and so I decided to combine it with this post.
As of right now, it’s November 16 and I have less than four thousand words. (Plus two thousand I accidentally handwrote yesterday… but I’m not counting that until I type it up, hopefully later today.)
So… I don’t really think I’m going to get 25k words this month. And you know what? That’s okay. I’m living through the absolute insanity that is senior year — meaning essays due every week and scholarship essays all over the place. I have probably written closer to 15k words this month if you count all the school writing.
Current plan is to write every single day until this novel is done. Because I’ve been working on it for seven years (*hides* yes that’s not a typo) and I just need to finish it.
