Well, I’m hoping this Sunday is more productive than last Sunday. I’m determined not to delete 3000 words again and spend the rest of the day day sulking and playing GTAV online like I did last week.
What I am planning to do today is to get stuck into this edit on The Space Watch. I’m really hopeful this is the last major edit pass we have to do before we’re ready to send it off to Beta readers. This story has been a long time in the works and I think both Owen and I are ready for it to be wrapped up.
I am planning on doing a little more outlining today as well. I’m nearing the end of the current outline I’m working on and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I say I’m nearing the end but the end could string out a little as the protagonist has a difficult part of her journey coming, but it wouldn’t be much of a conclusion to the story if the last part wasn’t hard for our star of the story.
I’m thinking back to the week and thinking I haven’t done much, but I’ve either outlined or edited each day, in some cases I’ve done both in a day. I’m not being as productive as I know I can be. I’m feeling quite inconsistent at the moment, but I am getting little bits done. It just feels like I’m not because I haven’t got a word count at the end of each day. I think what I need to do is just make a note of what I’ve done each day. Whether it’s a word count or just a note that I’ve done some outlining or editing, or world building. That way I can look back at a week and see what I’ve done.
I’m off to get started, I’ll check in again this evening.
