Tonight I actually managed to write 5 1/2 pages of foolscap which took me to 1246 words total. Not bad for a night where I was so tired I just wanted to settle down with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and listen to the storm outside the window. :)
Perhaps what got me through the 'I don't really want to write tonight' mood was thinking about how I could show up and connect with the story in a peaceful and restful way. I sat in a comfortable chair, listened to a meditation to help me unwind, and then wrote for a few minutes in my novel notebook about the story and some things that occured to me. Then a first line popped into my head - my hero asking a question - and it just flowed from there.
So, my goals:
Write at least four pages of foolscap each writing session (800 words approx)
Done. Only missed one night so far this month, and that was for a very good cause. Date Night with the hubster.
Some writing related activity (be it writing, plotting, worldbuilding etc.) - even if for only 5 minutes - every day
This is also taken care of, in addition to the actual writing, because I write down my thoughts in my novel notebook before each session.
A first draft almost complete (no matter how rough) by the end of this Round
I'm moving towards this day by day... And I'm very near to the 30% mark of this month's 25K goal. Woo hoo!
How are you all doing?
