I’ve been busy and for once I can say that partying has kept me away from writing. Believe me, it’s been a long time since I could say something like that. *grin*
The Speculative Realms party went well. Many thanks to those of you who dropped in to say hello. Your congratulations were much appreciated.
Now that the party is over … and the mess is (almost) cleaned up, I can return to some kind of normal mode again. I’m finding it a little difficult but, knowing me, it won’t be long before my mind will be slow enough to think rationally again. (Can’t you tell I’m not a party animal!?)
I haven’t written a single word this week, but I intend to fix that tomorrow night. My new writing routine has been established and I’m quite happy with it. I want to write 3,000 words a week. I think that’s a nice figure. Long term, it could amount to 156,000 words a year! The words will usually be written over three days – Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Monday to Thursday nights find me too tired to write and I’ve given myself permission to take it easy on those nights. Of course, if I do write…it’s a bonus, but that hasn’t happened yet so don’t hold your breath there. Last weekend I wrote 2,500 words. I didn’t reach my goal, but I was close and I’m happy about that. Besides, I had a party on my mind so I’m happy to have any words at all.
How many words do you like to write each week and what writing routine works best for you?
