Goals, goals, goals! Boy, when I decided to sign up for the ROW80 challenge, I sure made a lot of ’em.
This week I’ve been banging my head up against my laptop and breaking the cardinal rule of writing the first draft: just keep your hand moving.
Instead, I hit a brick wall on my WIP and avoided it all day yesterday :-(. I was having trouble with one scene, and instead of making a note in my MS and skipping over it, (like I should have done) I just didn’t write.
The good news? I had an epiphany. I figured out where to go next, and am working on that scene today.
So, here’s how this week has played out so far:
- I’ve written a page in my journal every day.
- I’m about 45 pages into Wild Mind and am working on a writing prompt I found in the book.
- I brainstormed Monday night and now have lots of ideas for blog posts (can’t wait to share 😉 )
- Writing in my WIP: so far, I’ve only gotten in 820 words on Monday, 0 on Tuesday and today I’ve written 245 toward my daily goal of 800 words.
