I’m straining to write 1,000 words a day now. I feel as if I’ve lost my edge and my focus for my novel. I’m at 59,0o0 words. It took me four days to write 1,000 words. I feel my writing is flat and that I’m just going through the motions (if that since it tookContinue reading “Straining to Write”

I did it yesterday. I wrote 1,000 words in the early morning hours (around 2 a.m. when I couldn’t sleep) and then wrote another 1,000 after work in the early evening. I’m thrilled to have written 2,000 words in one day. So this puts me at just over 46,000 words. Yeah!
I woke around 1 a.m. and got up. Went downstairs and wrote another 1,000 words–so now I’m done for the day. I might just kick it up a notch and try to get 2,000 words out of this day.
