Yikes. Little blip there. We missed…um, 6 days of updates. Bad, bad Kelly. I have been working but I’ve had a few frustrating days. But honestly, as much as I’d love to believe that I’m a writer that’s a machine – a writer that can just WORK IT – because I pride myself on accountability and I believe that writing is much more about “hard work” than it is about “being inspired” but the truth is – at least for me – some times you need to take a step back. You have to give your brain a rest, or let it work out some problems (writing or otherwise) you’re having before you can get over certain hurdles.
Most every writer I know is ALWAYS working, because even when you’re not ass in chair/words on page (which is a super important part of things, obviously), AT BEST you’ve still always got (at least) several problems on the back burner that you’re trying to solve.
The last few days I was writing, but not the way I had been and that was in large part because I was trying to figure out a bunch of difficult things. I don’t know if I’ve solved them all, but today marked definitely a re-focusing and a “getting back on the horse” when it comes to ass in chair/words on page.
So, I’m feeling very behind, but it was necessary to step back a bit and here are our new stats:
NOVEL X WORD COUNT: 1206
VARIOUS & MISC WORD COUNT: 2,554
TOTAL NANO COUNT THUS FAR: 17,964
PERSON/PLACE/THING I GOT TO WRITE ABOUT TODAY:
