August 40k

So I'm participating in writing 40k for August. It's going quite well. I've written, roughly, about 2k a day since August 1st. I went from 11k to 18k in my manuscript.

This is good.

I also discovered I have to write at night, when the kids are in bed. There's no way to write in the old lazy boy anymore. I set up a table and office chair in my bedroom, in the corner. The only room currently not cluttered with kids stuff, and I write.

Butt in chair, fingers on keys and it's working. I have many projects to tweak and revise. So many balls in the air. I've honestly felt like sitting down and crying, but that will get me no where fast.

Butt in chair, fingers on keys and NO distractions. I do listen to music, but I can't write in dead silence. I've tried. It doesn't work.

Butt in chair and fingers on keys.

I'll keep y'all updated on my progress. :)

Good luck on this! Sounds like you've got the first step nailed--butt in chair, fingers on keys. That's great advice!

Thanks, Debra! I did take a couple days off, but I'm back at it. :)
