I am still in the new phase of treating writing as a job. For several days the words flow, the hours are put in but then the discipline evaporates leaving the work unattended. I push forward, every backslide is eventually caught and I am back where I need to be…writing.
I have discovered that when I hit a blank (where should I go now with this character, plot…) or the words won’t come, if I switch to pen and paper it seems to break the pattern and allow words to appear on the page again. Then of course I have to type in what I’ve written…a bit of a pain but better than staring at a blank screen. I am going to try dictating the words in and see if that speeds up the process or not. Although I do edit myself as I type the written words in so perhaps I am not losing any time at all.
Another day. Commitment. I want this novel to move forward.
