Diary of a writing project. Day 29-30: one lost, one small victory

Tonight went better, but *argh* I’m such a slow writer.

This week word count goal: 32 500 words
Word count so far: 17 121

1 post for two writing days. Because this is writing rush week !!

Day 29
After all that writing prep, tonight I barely got 300 words down.
Long week-end means crunching day-time job task at night and, one thing let to another… and tiredness is getting the way of my little too ambitious writing plans.

I have just started and I just know I won’t be able to write, what, more than 10k words in 4 night-writing sessions?

I’m still going to try my best because I would love to be able to push through, but I think reaching 25k words this week is still a pretty good accomplishment for me.

We’ll see what tomorrow’s gonna bring this way!

Day 30
I did wake up at 5am this morning for the sole purpose of getting at least 500 words written before my kiddo got up.
But faith it would seem had other plans.

Kiddo woke up two minutes after I did, and suddenly, I had to get a bottle of milk, and get the kettle going, and try to remember where my emergency tea stash was hiding.
Long story short, no writing early this morning. I did try to compensate during my lunch hour, but I was not as productive as I hoped.

Tonight went better, but argh I’m such a slow writer. I think, think, think about the right words, and how to make that sentence prettier, when I might to erase the whole thing during revision.
But I can’t help myself, so I just have to drink more tea tomorrow night and push through one or two hours more than usual.

Sounds like a plan to me!

Thanks for reading. Until next time!
