So...I've been hard at work...well hardly AT WORK but I've been trying to put some serious time in on writing my novel each day. And coming from a REALLY rough start it's starting to shape itself into a story that I'm pretty excited about. I keep finding myself focusing on a mantra for myself "Just keep writing into the next scene. Just keep writing into the next scene." And it feels like it's working pretty well. As long as I manage to find some time each day to go somewhere I'm NOT comfortable and just sit down and WRITE for a while I manage to get some really solid material out.
I mean, I'm at 16000 words today. Of my story. And each day I look at it and find some more material to keep going on. Granted most of the time I have to force myself away from my computer to not go back and EDIT bits and pieces. (NO, bad Jonny. Editing is for December.) But if I can keep at this pace for EACH DAY. Just manage 2000 words a day, maybe a few more, I'll have my 50,000 well before the end of the month. I love that idea. Having a good chunk of a novel finished before the end of a month.
Now, I just need to cement this as a habit for EVERY day and then I'll be making some serious progress.
