Yesterday I hit my word count of 1,668 but didn’t reach my personal goal because I turned on Netflix – I’m not afraid to say that I’m hooked on Luke Cage. But in my defense, I’m new to watching the show and somehow managed to stop myself from binge watching during this week. Nevertheless, I lost track of my word count.
Today’s word count reached 1,600 words. I am off to a good start. The scene that I am writing is about Kathy’s training at a secret location owned and operated by her captives. She has a series of training classes that she has agreed to attend and complete. Each class has a set of lessons in combat, self-defense, and the art of survival. But unbeknownst to her, the final exam for each class is a battle to the death between the stronger and weaker students, where the survivor moves on to the next class. I’m excited about writing these scenes and can’t wait to see how it all plays out on the pages. Do you want to read an excerpt?
