Draft Word Count: 80,859 (Delta: +1,038)
Word count achieved today! Actually writing today was really easy. I got it done rather early and decided to work on the writing achievement system for Anomalous Writing, which I made good progress on so overall, today’s session went very well!
Today’s writing went very smooth. We got into the head of Sylvia again today. Her fear of dead bodies is not something constant in her character but I think it is an interesting idea for both a trauma doctor and someone surviving a zombie apocalypse. On the other hand I’m worried perhaps people will think I’m simply picking on the female gender, since she is freezing up a lot. I might need to be more explicit from the beginning she fears dead bodies or finds them weird but that is something to worry about in editing!
Anomalous Writing Update
Achievements have been started! I did some light Google searching and really couldnt’ find anyone who had done this before. I have stolen the idea from I Should Be Writing podcast but I figured it can’t be that new of an idea right? Giving people little goals to achieve for as they do a task? I dunno. The list is going alright. It is kind of hard to categorize them. I had a separate writing and editing section but I’ve now condensed that into one section. I haven’t started coming up with interesting names yet. I’m hoping that won’t be too hard! Here are some examples:
- Finished your first draft of a novel.
- Finished your second draft of a novel.
- Finished a final draft of your novel.
- Finished your second novel.
- Finished your fifth novel.
- Finished a novel. Repeatable.
- Finished your second short story.
- Finished your fifth short story.
- Finished your tenth short story.
- Finished a short story. Repeatable.
So yeah. I just need to give them names, and then hopefully come up with badge/graphic ideas for them!
