I was born in the middle of the 70s, but I've never really felt a strong connection to that decade. Most of my earliest memories begin with kindergarten, and therefore, 1980, so I think of myself as a child of the 80s.
That said, I'm loving the 70s right now because I finally passed the 70,000 word mark on The Other Side! My ultimate goal is 80K (natch) but I'm very happy with this accomplishment. My writing on this draft has been unsteady and I've rarely managed to write on consecutive days, but I'm getting there.
Right now I'm working on adding a subplot for the main character's sister. I had twenty chapters to start with and added six for her, spacing them so I alternate three for the MC, then one for her. I reached 70K at the end of the third chapter, so this means I'm halfway there. Even if I don't reach 80K, I'm still very happy with the progress I've made and I'm still a little surprised my 45,000 word original draft has mutated into a full-length novel.
But enough about me, how's your writing going? Or if you're not a writer, what's new in your world?
