I am working on a post that will be featured on a website later this week. It feels good to work on a blog post again. Lately, my posts have felt a little shallow because I think I’ve been rushed to get them in.
I have been doing NaNo daily and consistently which excites me. I’ve hit approximately 11,000 words. I am behind still and according to my NaNo stats I’ll need to write about 2,000 words a day to finish in time. This makes me frown – daunting task! but then I smile because I remember a few nights ago I literally wrote close to 2,000 words without even realizing it. I was so into the story and didn’t even keep count of the words. So I think not thinking of word count really is beneficial to me, which goes right along with the advice I’ve received from a couple of you ROW80ers – Thank you!!
The story. Therein lies the challenge lately of these last couple of nights. Though I have an outline of my scenes, I’m doubting the substance of my story but I’m forcing myself to keep writing despite not feeling completely confident in it. Surprisingly, a couple of cool scenes have emerged from this. Writing is really about keeping your bottom in the chair.
I close to finishing the revision of that paranormal mystery in the next couple of days. That would mean one ROW80 goal accomplished and that would be awesome! Progress…so good. Crossing my fingers…
