On 3-10 I finally breached 1,500 words on this project. This puts me passed the halfway point. There’s only 1,445 words to go.
The rough draft may not be my best work but at this point- more than a year passed the deadline- and with the story dredging along, I’m just going with it.
Changing from 3rd to 1st person has helped- borrowing characters from my YA has too- having characters based on real encounters was the boost tonight. That scenario was based on an actual moment in my own life. It just tweaked it to fit the story.
