It’s been good to get outside this week, parking myself at a cafe to write. With that, there’s been lots of progress – pages of a screenplay written. With the pages, that falling in love feeling again — with my story, with my characters. Though I skipped this morning’s writing time, I am planning on tomorrow night’s writing time outside — possibly at the Barnes & Nobles, a mile away from home. The goal as always is to be consistent. Doing something for 21 days creates a habit. That’s what I’m hoping for.
Sometimes the writing seems endless — the end goal, far, but having these writing times makes me see that I can reach that end goal. That I will finish a draft. It is possible.
Of course, my life hovers around me — there are only three weeks of school left — and plenty of school activities and events that will take up the days. Book reviews to write, a personal business to build but I will not despair. Despite the busyness, stress and anxiety, I will keep the faith.
I believe these voyages outside the home to write will help me with that.
Wishing all you ROW80ers an amazing week of words and progress.
