So there has been a little blip in my consistency in regards to my daily word count. I missed hitting 500 this past weekend – Saturday, I was exhausted after a long day of babysitting and one evening seminar. And yesterday, Sunday, I made an attempt to write but didn’t hit my mark — made it to 336 words. The crazy thing is it would not have been hard to keep eeking out words to get to the 500 but I rebelled and mentally said ‘no’ to the keyboard and ‘yes’ to my pillow and a book.
But I’m not discouraged. I think because I understand that if I just sit in front of my computer for about 45 minutes, I can hit that 500 word goal. Also that once I start writing a scene, it will start to flow naturally — which is what happened with the first 336 words. So I am looking forward to today when I get back in that groove again.
I’m working on the paranormal revision consistently and that’s been going great. I’ve outlined about ten additional scenes as I work on the subplot of my story. It feels good to have a planned outline before I write up the scenes.
This week is my ‘book review’ week – I write book reviews for a national magazine and my deadlines are next Monday. How it will impact my writing, I don’t know. There may be a slow down but hopefully not too much of a slow-down. I am aiming for the same goals this week despite the books I’ll need to review.
Wishing you ROW80ers a wonderful week of writing and achieving goals!
Until next time…
