Well, I should have mostly a full day of writing today. Still having a little trouble actually writing the whole time I’m in the chair. (grin) Just gotta keep working on it.
Today, and Writing
Rolled out at 3:30 and made it out to the Hovel by 7:30. Jumped right back into an unfinished scene from yesterday.
Also wrote a reverse outline for what I’ve done so far.
Wow. Cycling, and by 10 I had only around 1000 words. Then I took what was supposed to be a short break. But I ended up starting some laundry, then started watering the yard. Finally back to the novel at 11:15.
I can still have this one finished by mid-month if I hit 4,000 words per day for the next 6 days.
Off for a break at 12:45.
Back to the novel at 1:15. By 2 p.m., I had over 3300 words on the day. Amazing how much a goal and some advance knowledge of the numbers I’ll need helps. (grin) Off for a break.
2:30, back to the novel.
Good day today. Gotta run my grandson to work in a bit, so done for today.
