Yesterday I edited a little over 1300 words on Black Blood. I wasn’t going heavy with it, just a few words worked through.
Today I’ve written 1831 words on a one off scene that flowed beautifully and isn’t a sort of scene that I write often. I was going to edit but that scene was speaking too loud and needed to be expressed.
Come the end of the month I should be done with this pass of Black blood, when I checked the other day I had about 14k words to work through and that was likely closer to last weekend than this weekend.
This week has been physically demanding but today was the first day where I felt well throughout the day, and I feel like I’ve got a lot done. I had a heavy workload at the day job and this afternoon I’ve got words written, a video recorded and have sent a few messages I’ve needed to send and spent time talking to my best friend which we haven’t done for far too long.
Tomorrow, I’m going to have a productive day. I’ve got an early start on Monday so will likely wrap up the work for the day mid afternoon. So I’m aiming for an early start and get words wrangled!
I have posted a video on YouTube where I talk about todays words.
When I’m being productive, life is so much better.
Today I did not want to write. I wasn’t in the best of moods and I was tired. The last thing on this planet I wanted to do was sit my arse down and write, having my teeth pulled would have been more appealing this morning. I stuck it out though. I put a YouTube playlist on shuffle (then later an album of my iTunes library as YouTube had a hissy fit), and got stuck in. It helped that I knew what I wanted to do, although the chapter I’m working on at the moment I thought would be more editing but I ended up scraping two scenes and I’ve re-written one and started on the next one.
In the end I finished the morning with 1169 words for the day. I find it surprising how easy the words can come when I’m pissed off. I know it acts as a form of therapy, it helps vent frustrations even if I’m not writing about, or even near, what’s on my mind.
That’s enough for now. I want to get some pages read on the books I’m reading.
