I’ve hit 10,000 words on my YA manuscript.
It’s the fourth time I’ve done so. The previous three times, I hit the 10,000 word mark and realized the story was not going where I wanted it and I ended up deleting everything. I’m hoping the fourth time’s a charm.
The story is completely different from what I imagined it when the idea was originally concieved one and a half years ago.
It’s been…interesting to say the least.
This time does feel different, though. I feel more confident in my story and my writing and that’s half the struggle.
But yes, I’m still trudging on.
