Moonlake’s Writing Updates- Jan 2023

I am still battling on for the WIP. Currently, I am working on adding more obstacles to Act 2 and potentially Act 3 of my story. 

I continue to be in my low energy phase with the WIP and I have cut down to one session per weeking day (5 times a week now) with a word count of 100. To that end, I am looking towards earning money now and am in the process of applying to tutor algebra, general studying skills, improving English and providing English essay feedback and teaching free writing on Outschool. 

I am now on draft 0.83 although the numbering is starting to lose meaning now- I have no idea whether I will have to go up by 0.01 from now on, I started off at 0.5 and incremented by 0.1 at first until this 0.01 thing just started creeping in and it’s been going on for a while now. 

The tentative next project is on the backburner now. I’ve given it two tries in between my decimal drafts and I knew what I needed to do to fix it- rather than peg a bunch of historical events and have them drive my story, I need to basically start from scratch and approach it from my protagonist’s angle and add pertinent events, perhaps borrowing from historical events. After all, I’m not a historical fiction author and what I was doing with it was too much historical fiction for me. 

That’s it for updates. Still continuing to write in my incremental way forwards.
