Quick update....I finally finished typing up my notebooks!
You can't imagine how satisfied it felt to close the third one. That was a process that took hours. I doubt I'll ever let myself get that behind again. Transcribing is not fun!
After all was said and done, I had "handwritten" 16, 789 words.
When I typed them out into scenes (with page breaks/chapters), it equaled 88 pages of writing.
Not a bad start to the book!
I have a lot of parts that I'll need to add to (or flesh out as everyone in my MFA program says) and there are missing scenes, but I have a pretty decent start.
I'm trying to silence the self-editor and just keep typing. I don't want to revisit the work yet; I'm going to try really hard to leave that for the second round.
So that was my big accomplishment this weekend. What about you? Did you accomplish any good writing or reading things this weekend? Or did you just have a great holiday weekend? Do share!
