One-third of the way

I’m up to chapter 12 for Arlyn’s story.

I feel myself slowing down a bit, but I know I’m hitting the one-third portion of the novel. It’s said that this is a point when many writers start to feel pressure on the story.

Since I’m trying to pay attention to the stages of writing a book, mostly so that I can understand my own writing process and obstacles better, I’m interested to see what happens over the course of the next few days. Will I get through this one-third portion easily or not? I know I usually run into issues at the two-thirds point in the story, but do I have the same earlier? Yeah, it’ll be interesting.

Well, I’ve got my words in for tonight, so I’m off to paint for a few minutes.
