I’ll be doing this once a month around the start of a new month as a quick check in on my progress with my first novel draft as a means of keeping me on track to deliver a decent word count.
Cinéma Vérité currently stands at 142,530 words, which means in July I wrote 4,883 words. That is significantly lower than last month’s total, which is a real shame. Funnily enough, I somehow managed to leave the thing mid-sentence. I literally got up and walked away in the middle of a sentence a couple days ago to get a drink or something, and ended up not coming back. Weird.
New goal is 150,000 by September. I have to do better than I did in July.
