November 6th ROW80 Update
November 6, 2011 § 5 Comments
Here’s where I am at the end of week one: one-third of the way through my WIP. (I am a Nano cheater, though.) I have chipped away at my three acts and plan on having a perfectly sculpted masterpiece by November 30th (maybe more of a blob but a finished one).
So, I have written 1,500 words every day except for yesterday, when I did some heavy editing. I’m further in Fiction For Dummies, and I hope to finish it next week. I also read two books, and didn’t review them. Shame on me. I’ll do that.
I’ve found that writing on actual paper with this thing called a pen is really helpful to me. I did it in college, and I don’t know why I hadn’t started doing this earlier. It also helps that I can write anywhere without my laptop. The other day I had one kid strapped to my chest, one kid in the stroller asleep, the sheepdog walking on the leash and stopped to write two pages in my notebook after every lap at the park. It was multitasking heaven! (Virginia Woolf was wrong about needing a room of one’s own.)
This week’s goals are the same as last week. 1,500 words a day.
