Just a short post, today.
So far starting this blog and putting myself on the spot seems to be working. There have been two occasions since I started it when I felt like not writing, I was tired or something shinier called, but I knew if I didn’t write I’d have to put some pathetic word count up on this blog.
So I sat down and wrote. No more 226 word days since the first one. I’ve been coming in regularly around 500 words.
August 24 – 600
August 25 – 450
(I’ll try to come up with a better way of logging the word count. Anyone have any ideas? Yes, I know no one is really reading this, yet, but should someone wander by and peek in the window…)
This is working on other levels, too. Since I’m rewriting my book, writing daily is keeping me in the story, keep the book fresh in my mind which should help make it better. Is it Harry Potter? No, probably not, but if you read my last post, I’m trying to shake off the burden of lofty expectations and just write.
So far, so good.
