Added another 1000 words today! Woohoo. My first novel I was worried about getting it high enough, and now I am worried about it being too long, and worried that I am not getting to actual action fast enough. But realizing there's a wolf nearby, then tailing him, then walking into the same room as him are all "action" right? I mean, it's definitely not backstory, and I, of course, feel it is all necessary. But my MC is just about to lift his axe. So that big fight scene is still coming? AAHHH I still love it, but maybe tomorrow someone will actually take the first blow.
In the meantime, keep loving your stories, and good job. I love this thread, because today I was thinking, "You gotta write Amanda, you need to post on the thousand words thread!"
