As long as the writing serves the story, I say it counts!
I sometimes write around the thing I want to say in the hopes that it will reveal itself. It doesn’t always work, but it does help with ruling out what I don’t want to say… 🤨
I’m thrilled you liked the book! 😁
3352 words. Not in the story, mind you, but about it. I was fleshing out future events. But I really enjoyed it and have a better grasp on my outline now.
BTW, Cheryl, I read Spiker and loved it. 🙂
