It's TERRIBLE!! I am writing the most depressing pile of drivel EVER! And I'm not even doing it quickly! Who ever thought this was a good idea?
OK, none of that matters. In November, more than any other time, I have permission to write crap. In fact, it's practically expected, and that's why I didn't want to take on Project Seven. I am literally sketching out an expanded outline at the moment, nothing more. But I have at least got my characters into space now, ready to explore their first new planet.
My main problem is time. With the day job, a demanding 3-year-old, and the house to keep in order, I am only managing about an hour of decent writing time per writing day. Out of which I am getting about 750 words. (Out of which about 50 are worth keeping, I suspect.)
But if I can come out of this month with a habit of writing 750 words of fiction most days - or at least just spending that hour on it - I will have achieved something.
I jammed over here via DAB. I am Leslie! I love your idea of setting a word goal for the week. I am a full time college student, single mom of 3 kids and totally understand how you can't find time to write. I am going to try your idea in my world. I have a major 30 page paper due. I think if I set small goals I may have success. Thanks for the idea and here goes! See you around at DAB
Hugs on the drivel, Steve. But drivel can be revised, right? That's what *they* keep telling us.
Thanks for stopping by. :)
Valerie, that's what *they* say December is for...
