So far, so good.
I’m on day three of the new routine. Each day I’ve done more than my basic words. I’m keeping track in my paper journal but I need to figure out a way to keep track in a spread sheet. Yet another program I have to tinker with – Numbers, with iWork ’08 (got it for Christmas two weeks before they announce the ’09 version … *sigh*).
Tonight all my powers of procrastination bucked and whinnied and tried their best to make sure I didn’t write. I didn’t want to work on the scene I’d left off in, but I need my 25o words and I didn’t want to waste them on a free-writing session. So I sat there a while, distracting myself here and there, but decided to scene-skip and write a little from the funeral scene about a third of the novel away. Got my words: 382.
I’ve also been posting on the new bullitin board for the SHS. Looks like we’re set to do a run to Ad Astra in late March and there is work afoot to get a like-minded group down to World Con. I’m feeling very up beat about everything today: I’ve a plan for the week of write goals, I’ve hopes to attend two conventions this year, I’ve just finished The Creative Habit and my books from Amazon.ca arrived.
Just a nice little rosey glow on everything right now and I’m going to enjoy it for a bit.
