100k Word Challenge: Day 16

Words written:  258

Thoughts:  I am exhausted.  I took it easy at work, but the current events had my mind going all day.  Also, PMS is no joke, and it’s only gotten worse as I’ve aged.  This whole week I’ve felt so tired and ugh.  I don’t know how else to explain it.

Story wise,  I just manufactured another fight between my main two characters.  I don’t know why.  It’s near the end of the book, and I need to start wrapping things up.  I’m having a bit of trouble with the series.  I want them to be less than 30,000 words, but the short length turns it into insta-love under the circumstances.  All the couples are strangers who meet for the first time, build a relationship in a stressful situation, fall in love, and have sex.  Now I see why fantasy novels are 100,000 words.  In addition to world-building, you need to slowly develop relationships.

I’m glad that once this series is out, my next series will be about best friends who fall in love.  At least, I think that’s the next series…I need to check my writing/publishing schedule to confirm that.

I plan on catching up on my word counts starting tomorrow night.  My regular day off is Friday, and I should be able to get 10,000 words done before I go to my friend’s house for dinner.  I can get 5,000 words done tomorrow, and 10,000 words on Saturday, and 7,500-10,000 words on Sunday (Sunday is hair and laundry day).
