On Writing: And When Those Words Flow

Today’s word count: 1724 words.

The writing went extremely well today; the best session I’ve had since I started working on my daily goal of 1000 words or half an hour of writing. So obviously the changes I’ve made were the right ones.

I didn’t feel particularly enthusiastic about sitting down to write today, either. It wasn’t like I was in any kind of rush to sit down and get to it. I did it because I knew I would have to write this post and I needed to sit down for half an hour and write something. Anything.

But then when I did sit down, it was easy. The words just flowed. There were a few rough spots, where I found myself searching for the right word, but on the whole, there was an ease to it that was very enjoyable. I didn’t stop until I had finished the scene, and I hadn’t meant to do that.

I’m getting there! I’ll be deleting and rewriting another scene tomorrow. At the rate I’m going, I might actually have a completed manuscript to revise by the end of the summer.

    Congratulations! I’m going to give myself a goal of 1,000 words a day as well. You are an inspiration! :)
