I have under 20 days to finish my novel! That crazy! I've been doing this thing for 10 days already? Its felt like many weeks, many many weeks of this stuff! But its only been a week and three days.
So today I wrote on Alice's journal, and just finished entry five. I'm pretty proud of myself! Running on this smoothly. Just the matter of remembering I'm writing in a present and past tense, all the scenes she talks about are to be expressed through past tense.
I was talking to mum today about my word count. And I was thinking about how 1000 words seem like nothing to me now I'm at 16k. I mean, 100 words are like little babies. When I see the number, it looks like nothing to overcome. Its crazy how when I stared, I thought that 100 words was huge, and 1000 even bigger. But now I feel like I can accomplish anything! Its nothing but letting your imagination flow onto the page.
