Right, my schedule for the year has solidified. I’m on the sixth day of the schedule at 1500 words a day. The solution to my writer’s block was simple: Focus. Find an object of affection and commit to it.
I needed to combine some old settings and stop taking so many notes to actually make progress. In fact, the addition of one of the old settings was done halfway through writing the first scene. Anyway, I want to really see how many words I can write this year, so I moved the original goal up from 1200 to 1500 words per day. I’ve written 800 or so this morning, and now I’m on the way to 9000 (I was a little lax yesterday).
Christmas was great. It really set me on the right track, especially the talk with Aunt Nancy and Uncle Ray. It was a good sort of ‘snap out of it’ conversation, as I have been wallowing too much. Thanks a lot, both of you!
I’m just taking a short break right now before I get back to work on the book. I’m planning on doing a whole 4-5 book series in this setting– All this year, so wish me luck.
