I'm getting hung up on wordcount. I can't believe it. I don't think I've ever worried about wordcount in my life. But my WIP snowballed uphill into this awesomely disturbing climax around 100 pages and now I'm a little worried about the rest of it.
Major scenes have been plotted out and I'm sure my characters will take me on some wild ride and steer the story into places I haven't even considered, but if I focus on writing those major scenes, I'm thinking this may be one short book.
Maybe it's my way of worrying or procrastinating or slowing down the crazy roll I've been on for the last few weeks. I have to stop worrying about word count and like my Mom says, "Just do it!"
What worries get in the way when you're working on a project?
