Accountability check in 12/21/15

Still hanging in on there on schedule. But I'm doing it by rushing. I feel like all pretense of quality has gone out the window. And why the hell not? part of me argues. This is the first draft, it's supposed to suck and basically be an outline on steroids. I'm still finding the story.

But the part of me that always lingered on the first draft and tried to get a sensible, consistent draft out of it is cringing. Chill out, Nancy. This is really draft zero. As soon as you finish it, you will re-outline it with a mind to an actual plot. You'll have an idea who the characters are, and the settings. This is how it works. :whistle:

Working title: The Girl From Venus
Planned # of chapters: 27
Planned date of first draft completion: Jan 31st, 2016
Current chapter: 20
Finish last week's goal? Yes
This week's goal: Start chapter 21
This month's goal: Get at least party way into Chapter 21

*waves pom-poms* This is me, cheering you on! Hi there :) Yes, get the first draft done without thinking too hard about it. You've got plenty of time to mull over your choices and revise the heck out of your plot. Kudos to you, though. You're at chapter 21, which is amazing!

Merry Christmas, btw. Hope you're having a good time of family and friends and food (all good f-words, look at that!) and maybe a bottle of red wine as well. I've got sangria, myself. :)
