27th February 2021

I’ve started editing 7843 words and written 1181, but also deleted about 3000 words. This means I’ve moved onto the next story in the vampire book and boy is there a lot of changes to make. I’ve got a feeling this will be more rewrite than edit, but we’ll see how it goes.

I’m just about to get ready for work, and despite feeling dead tired I’m feeling good. It always helps getting words wrangled early on in the day. I get to work and I’m energised (despite the fatigue), because I’ve already accomplished something. I’ll take a notebook with me to try and do a little during my break but I’m not expecting to get more done today. I’m trying to push harder, get more done, but until I sit down and look back at the month I’m not going to judge it too much. I can’t guilt trip myself on days like yesterday when I didn’t write. I need to get in the habit of looking what I’ve done over the month and then set myself a target for the next month to try and better that.

Right, I’m off to get my butt into gear. I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and be kind and good. It makes a difference even if it doesn’t feel like it.

  1. 1181 is great. I did 309. I know the editing-rewrite feeling. I think my current novella is like that. I’m going to fiddle with it one more day and then let it sit while I draft my next one so that when I come back to the first one I’ll have fresh eyes.
