Dragon NaturallySpeaking

As of right now, I have 18,450 words. I managed a little over 3k yesterday. I used Dragon Naturally Speaking to give my the larger word count. Today I don’t have that “cone of silence” or privacy, that I need to dictate my novel as my step son is on his week end. My next day to dragon is Friday.

Today was my writers group so I added a thousand or so to the story. I hope to get another thousand before I go to sleep. Though I know I should be at the halfway point, 25k, since we are halfway through the month, I allow that I did start late and may not actually finish until mid-August at this rate.

I like to write in yWriter. Well, I actually start my character development in WriteItNow as they have a lot of questionnaires to get a better handle on the new people. It also helps me with the world building. Then I move into yWriter. It helps me stay on some kind of outline as I go as it makes you think in chapters and scenes and POVs. It helps me stay organized in other words.

I was calling the novel Lost in Time. I have the beginning of the novel under my “Stories” tab. I think I will change the title to Locket(s) in Time as that is the mechanism that moves the characters back and forth in time. I probably won’t post more of the story until I get to the editing part in a month or so.

By the way, this story will not be G or GP. It will be  talking about adult subjects and adult situations. Some of them are hot but others are ugly secrets that society has tried to hide between family members. I don’t mind writing a sex scene or two but those stories of dangers and angers are very hard to write. I didn’t know where this story was going to go when I started but the main characters and the antagonist has directed this from the beginning. I just need to write the truth they tell me.

Well, that was more than I planned to write in the blog. I needed that wordage in my story! Think I’ll copy and paste it into yWriter under a new scene called Blog. 🙂
