This week seems to the one where I’ve had late starts when it comes to writing. Aside from Monday I don’t think I’ve been able to sit down and start writing before 9pm all week, last night it was just gone 10pm when I finally sat down to get writing (I’d been out Christmas shopping). I still got my words done. A 1000 words in a little over 40 minutes.
Last night was one of those nights where I could have quite easily just thought ‘Screw it, it’s too late’ but no. Just because I got home late or have had a lot to do when I get home isn’t an excuse for me not to write, although I think 11pm needs to be a shut off. Anything after that time, especially on a work night, needs to be me thinking about getting to bed.
I’ve passed the 10,000 word mark on this re-write of Earth, After Liberation. I’m a little behind from where I wanted to be simply because I didn’t get started till the 3rd of this month but I’m not far off from catching up.
Right, I’m off to get ready for work. Hopefully tonight I’ll be able to get started on the writing before 9pm. If anything having this new mindset, and determination at this time of year is a good way to test that determination as we’re approaching Christmas and the New Year and it’s a time when there’s a lot to, a lot of distractions. So it should be an interesting few weeks 🙂
