Just checked to see where I SHOULD be on my novel. 18,000 words, huh? Yeah… I think I have just over 6,000?
What is a girl to do?!
Well, I suppose first off, I should just breathe. Because truthfully, if I really think about it, I’ve probably only logged maybe 3-4 total hours writing over the past week. While that’s not really what I had hoped would happen, I think my word count is where it should be based on my logged hours.
Now comes my writing worries:
When you write, do you feel like you write scenes that are straight out of other books? Not purposefully, obviously, but those are just the words that are coming out of your fingers?
I’ve been running into this a lot as I’ve been writing and am having to stop myself. Yes, I know that with this particular challenge I’m just supposed to write and not over-think things, but if my main character falls in love with a vampire who struggles to kill her even though he loves her, what do you think the chances are of said girl having a werewolf best friend, who is also in love with her?
Do you do anything to combat copying plots or scenarios?
