This week I hit a milestone in Jairus' story. I finished a chapter! It's short, at about 3500 words, but complete. I think the scene will do well as the opening to the story.
Every time I hit a milestone like this, I feel this huge pressure off my shoulders, but I also feel tired. I end up losing momentum. I need to focus and get chapter two mapped out so I can start writing it, but part of me has lost enthusiasm for the task.
I let other things get in the way the last couple days, but it is time to get back to work. I forced myself to sit down and blog today to give the update and also to help refocus my mind on the task ahead.
I am looking forward to telling this story in Jairus' life. Here's to maintaining momentum!
As I posted before, if I did a really good job the last few weeks of raising your curiosity about the story and you are interested in giving feedback, let me know!
