Week One: Progress or Not?

Postby PaulaO » 09 Nov 2010, 09:26

So, like, how we doin'?

Me, not so good. Real Life has distracted me like mad and I am having difficulty finding adequate time to get into the flow of things. I am not a 500 words here or there kind of writer. Else I spend more time trying to figure out where I was going and just what the heck was I doing?!

But I keep reminding myself that it is only Day 8 and there's a lot more days to go. I typically don't start freaking until I hit day 18 to 20. Try to not focus on the daily word count (1667, by the way :whistle: ) and instead look at what you have.

Post yer numbers and yer feelin's here. Going good? About what you thought? Harder/easier?

Not making much progress due to real life responsibilities. I'm managing to write everyday, but it's a little here and a little there. I'm trying not to get frustrated with that, though. I think I have a good idea of where I want my story to go, and given enough time, I'm sure I'll get there.

I'm doing pretty good, right on track actually. It's nice but also a little frustrating because I'm used to having some breathing room by now. Writing two novels at once is a bit more of a challenge because the extra word count I would normally have basically goes into the other novel. Still, I'm having fun and at the end of it I'll have two spanky new novels to edit. :)

Fun is the key! Writing should be fun. Hard, difficult, frustrating, head banging as well. But fun underneath it all.
