Wow, we are already over the middle of the week. Where does the time go?
My week got off to an inauspicious start. My voice had deserted me. By that I mean my actual voice and not some writing based euphemism.
Then Tuesday came and went and it saw me send more than 100 emails for work. All of them work related and necessary. It was crazy.
On the writing front I wish that I could have been so productive. I don’t know what it is, but I just cannot get into any sort of swing with this book. I think that maybe it is a case of wanting to write it too much. I am too keen and find myself over thinking things at this early stage. When really I should just be writing it. It’s the first draft after all. As Mr. King himself says, the first draft is written for me, not for the readers.
My totals for the week so far are:
I am on course to hit my 500 word minimum today and hopefully can make up a little for yesterday if not Sunday too. I hope that by just plodding on and chipping away at project my momentum will build naturally. As I had said the other day, it has been about three years since I wrote something new, with characters I was not already familiar with. Maybe this is just how it goes and I have forgotten what it feels like.
How are you all doing with your goals this week?
