To see my novel take shape is such an amazing process to be a part of. As some of you who follow me probably have noticed I write by hand first and then into my Mac. I started with a milestone of 50 pages and was thrilled to get there. Now I have reached my 100 pages milestone and I can’t believe how well it’s going. I have made a promise to myself that the book will be finished (first draft at least) before the year 2015 is here. So now I’ve stepped up my game and I feel fortunate to be so inspired and seeing that my characters are developing a life of their own in my mind (feeling slightly schizophrenic at times though) and at times are even surprised at the choices that they make.
I don’t think I have ever felt more like a writer as I am feeling now a days. This is truly what I love to do. With my pen in hand and my characters playing out their lives in my head I find that extra bliss even on those gray and gloomy days.
Next milestone to reach is 150. How long will it take?? Stick around to find out 🙂
What kind of creative milestones do you strive to achieve these days?
