It is so easy to make up excuses for not writing, and I think often the biggest cause of writer’s block is the writer. In my case, this is true anyway.
I reached this week’s target, only if to avoid the guilt trip I would put myself on at 2am. But it felt good. I have also written down some more notes for the second book, and this has proven to be even more motivation to get book one done, because I simply do not have the time to work on multiple projects at the same time, so I have to finish one before starting on another.
So, an update:
- Total words written in the past 7 days: 7137
- Total new words written in that time: roughly 6000
- Chocolate desserts made: 2
- Other chocolate-based items eaten: 3
- Hours spent wallowing: 12
- Hand cramps avoided: 6
Every week it seems I come across more and more good writing sites. I am thinking of making a regular sites of the week post, probably at the end of the week, listing the great sites I have found during the week. Or alternatively, I should just add my Stumble feed to the site. It all depends on how time goes, really.
I have, however, been thinking, since I found the site this afternoon, of participating in Fiction Fridays, starting next week (since tomorrow! is Friday!)
