Howdy folks! I hope everyone’s day is going well?
I managed to get 1236 words written this morning, which is more then I was expecting. When I wrote my post this morning the thought of hitting even 500 words felt like a pipe dream, but I got some fluids and a little food into me and fought through the initial feeling of “let me go back to be!!!!!!” and cracked on. I’ve often said, I am the only person holding me back. That is absolutely true, that is something which I am working hard to overcome.
One thing that helped with this mornings words was that I was rewriting a scene that I knew I liked from the original drafts and I like how I’ve rewritten it. I’ll admit, it was originally very judgemental of one character, I suppose to a degree it was very cliched as well. I didn’t want to demonise this character for the lifestyle they had. It’s one that is their choice and although there is an element of scope to judge part of this characters lifestyle, I hope I’ve demonstrated some of the hypocrisy of other characters in the scene. I’m sure when I sent it to my beta readers, and my editor that all three will be more than happy to correct me if I’ve fucked it up!
Right, time to get ready for work! I hope everyone is having a good day!
