Book writing update…. 50,000 words

I’m officially 50,000 words through my first novel ‘Sweet Revenge’. I have been writing since Autumn of last year. Progress has been slow which is understandable since I have a full time job and other commitments. I’m confident enough now to have it finished by next year….

What’s slowing me down though is when I find myself changing my mind about certain parts so end up rewriting sections. Sometimes I delete 500 or so words and go in a different direction or change part of the character which means I have to go back and make sure I’ve implemented that change throughout. Writing is hard! I knew it wouldn’t be be easy but it’s harder than I thought it would be! But so rewarding! 

My aim is to write about 80,000 words then will try and add more to it when I edit it. 

Any tips or advise would be very welcomed!!!
