Two steps forward, one step back. If repeated enough times, I will still get to where I want to be.
Like timed writing, sprinting in Discord is meant to help me write more/faster by keeping me focused. Yeah, you probably know where this is going.
Your inner critic will win every argument.
I am ever the optimist. Optimism is not enough to save a failed experiment from repeating itself.
Trying timed writing. Again.
Future plans and my plan to try a weekly quota.
Clearing my slate and thinking about the new year.
I’m writing and that’s good. I wish it were easier going but I’ll take what I can get.
A fun challenge. I want to write 1,200 an hour. Take 2.
A fun challenge. I want to write 1,200 words an hour.
Feeling kind of blah about it all.
It feels great to be writing again.
The break is over. Time for a fresh start.
Yesterday, I made it most of the way through my story. I’ve made enough changes that I’m going to start today at the halfway point and keep going from there, in case I messed up something. I added a few lines, deleted a few more, and need to double and triple check for typos. :)Continue reading “Progress continues, hope to finish today”
The proofread I’ve been working on has taken a lot longer than I thought it would take. Most don’t take long at all, relatively speaking. My usual reading speed for a proofread is about one chapter per 15 minutes, where I make a few highlights per chapter of things to fix. I’ve done a lotContinue reading “A little slow but pleased with my progress”
I didn’t change yesterday’s title because there’s nothing of substance in the post anyway, no one will be looking for it later, including me :), and it just doesn’t feel important enough to bother with. Yesterday, I spent more time at the computer on my work than I’ve spent on it in ages. “Ages” meaningContinue reading “Promising start; and who needs titles?”
I’ve been in a slump. Probably the worst slump of my life when it comes to writing. I’ve never gone quite as long as I’ve gone this time without wanting to spend time writing anything at all. I think I’m finally recovering. “Think” being the real state of things, though. I can’t say for sure.Continue reading “I’ll think of a title later”
The writing has been a little slow to start this month, but I decided late last month that August would be the perfect time for a fresh start. I’ve had family obligations keeping me busy, and although I wanted to get a lot of writing done in July, it turned out to be unrealistic. OneContinue reading “A fresh start for August”
I don’t think I’ve ever had it so hard when trying to restart my writing after a break. I’m so out of the habit of daily writing that I literally keep forgetting to get started. Last night, I decided it was time to go back to a schedule. I don’t want to think of thisContinue reading “It’s time for a schedule (so I can write lots of books this year)”
I’ve decided to resume my working log entries. I always get a little jolt of energy from logging my work as I go, and you never know, but something I write here might help someone else with their own work, even if it’s just the energy that comes from working while you know someone elseContinue reading “Working log: editing & publishing a short novella today”
