Writing journal, day 3 & 4

I don’t know if you’ve notice the page count going down over there, but it is. Writing is going. There will be no revising until the weekend. I only look back a sentence or two to pick up the story. There is no editing.

I turn this piece in to my writer’s group on Sept. 11. That’s a big motivation. I’d like to have a big chunk of it done by then. I’ve basically been writing every spare moment, blocking out stuff with the headphones. Knowing my own work habits, which are sporadic–a spurt of activity followed by a period of non-activity–I’m taking advantage of the motivation.

I’ll be interested to see how the revising goes this weekend.
