Good evening all. I have written 517 words on the vampire book today, most of which during lunch. This evening I did a little more editing then writing as I want to change the direction the story was going. I did start on another project as well, but I’m knackered so I’m calling it a night.
Aside from the 1st and 2nd I’ve written everyday this month. I’m trying for a little consistency at the moment and slowly build up my productivity as I go.
I’ve felt a little lost this week with writing. I’ve had to right my course a little on both the project that I’m working on. I’ve let a lot of self-doubt creep in, okay a straight up crisis of confidence. Some of this is something I can’t address just yet, but might be a big change to my plans for the year. I have to wait on that one though.
I do think I’ve addressed one of the problems and I’ve began to try and change my mindset and method to compensate for that. I know this is part and parcel for many creatives, and it’s something I do get from time to time. But it’s the first time I’ve had this level of doubt in a while, and the first time I’ve doubted my plans for the year to eighteen months when it comes to writing.
At the moment it’s going to be a little waiting and seeing what plays out. Something I’ve learnt over the last few years is that sometimes its best to wait and see.
