I’m straining to write 1,000 words a day now. I feel as if I’ve lost my edge and my focus for my novel. I’m at 59,0o0 words. It took me four days to write 1,000 words. I feel my writing is flat and that I’m just going through the motions (if that since it took me four days to get to 1,000 words). f
I wrote an outline, but now that I’ve used most of my outline and still not to 70,000 words, I feel like I cannot draw this novel out to 70,000 words. So where do I end it? It feels unendable. Or maybe I should say unwritable now. I mean how many times can the hero ask the herone to marry him only to be turned down in a romance?
