I’m coming off two days of zero word counts and I’m feeling disheartened by that. It’s been so uncomfortably hot in here without my A/C and I’m not doing well with the kids at home either. However, today I’m going to turn that all around. I still don’t have A/C and the kids will still be here, but I’m determined to write 3,933 words today at a minimum and get some copy editing done on a book I want to get published sooner rather than later.
I’m coming off a good night’s sleep and I’m ready to get started.
Here’s how it’s going.
Hour 1 was a serious letdown. I know what happened though, and it was me, getting hung up on what was already written instead of moving on to what’s not.
Getting over that now, before I start hour 2. Not going change anything in the rest of the stuff I’m reading through unless it’s an outright mistake. I “fixed” an action I didn’t like on the part of the character, and as a result, I ended up sucked into changing other stuff that probably didn’t need to be changed. By the time I was done, I’d changed a lot of it back (what usually happens and why changing stuff is a total waste of my time).
So, hour 2 wasn’t really any better. The distractions here are killing my momentum.
