March turned out to be a really great month for writing! I’m super-pleased with my results:
Number of Writing Weeks: 4 out of 4
Total Word Count: 4,836 words
Average Word Count Per Week: 1,209 words
% of Monthly Word Count Goal: 241.8%
Other Stats: 3 Writing Days per Week
Now things are really chugging along. Not that they weren’t before, mind you. But, put this in terms of the Hero’s Journey: we’re now crossing a second Threshold, initiating a new round of Tests, with new Allies, Enemies, and Rivals to be revealed.
In fact, my protagonist has just now met the deuteragonist, a character who serves as something of a foil. Both characters are, I believe, necessary to provide multiple perspectives on the main issues that drive the plot. Shortly, within the next chapter or two that I write, these two will come into conflict – neither yet fully aware of the antagonist‘s ultimate aims.
All I can say is: I hope somebody reads and enjoys it once it’s done.
