Only one week into the new year and I'm already behind on my 250K words. I should have a little over 5,000 words by right now and I have 1300. And the worst part of it is, the killer in my mystery story has decided he's not the killer. So I have a corpse, but no culprit. This is turning out to be much harder than I thought it would be. So tomorrow I'll catch up.
Work has been crazy lately. End of year stuff, then beginning of year stuff. And we starting working heavily on our annual fundraiser, which is totally my responsibility this year. I'm nervous but excited about that. The good news is, my raise ended up being better than I thought it would be, and now I actually have enough money to find a new place, if there is a place to be found. I almost wish I could buy a lot that is within walking distance from my office, so I don't have to drive anymore. I'm soooo sick of the hour commute there and back again. Two hours a day in a car is not my idea of fun. Anyway, hopefully tomorrow I will have something positive to report about the wordcount situation.
Just keep writing, no matter what. Even when things are crazy, find 15-30 minutes and just write. It will help you keep your rhythm, and make it easier for you to slide back into it when you have longer chunks of time.ReplyDelete
