Chapter 11 complete

It took several passes before I felt satisfied with it. I needed a lot of intensity there, and that took some doing. Writing to my Evanescence CD helped alot. So now I'm all set for the next chapter, which is going to include a huge battle scene, but it is going to have to wait while I work on homework. I've put it off too long.

Anyway, I finished the 2-day marathon with about 7000 words. I have now completed 2 chapters for the 2-month writing mission.

The top level for the two-month goal is 9 chapters, not 15. It doesn't really matter, because I'm actually going to try and complete this novel in that amount of time, so it is more like 20 chapters.

Anyway, I just completed Chapter 10 with 12 pages. We're right on the verge of a big fight scene and I'm anxious to get to it.

So I have surpassed the two-day marathon goal of 3k, and I now have a two-day total of 4500 words completed.

As for the mission, I have 1 chapter I can chalk up as completed for that.

I just finished Chapter 9.

Whew! The last 6 pages just came out in a rush this morning and I'm literally wiped out by the intensity of it.

Anyway, Challenge wise here's where I stand:

Monthly Marathon (2-day challenge): 1500 words done / 3000 words goal
Novel Mission (2-month challenge): 0 chapters done / 15 chapters goal

I'm going to start counting the mission with the first complete chapter, which will begin with Chapter 10.

Another Chapter Down!

I just finished Chapter 8. Whoo! I'm right on the cusp of a VERY interesting scene, and my characters are squirming. HA! HA! HA! (evil laugh)

I only put them through heck for the benfit of the reader and to produce an interesting plot. Really, I don't enjoy this stuff at all!

Chapter 7 Done

Only 9 pages long, but acceptable. I'm notin position for the next couple of chapters, which are going to be action packed. I can't wait to get to them.
