This one will be brief, I swear. I've got too much to do still. I was pretty much a failure at writing this week. I have been under a ton of stress lately with things that are completely life related, and I discovered I have a much harder time writing when my stress level is high. Not impossible, just not as easy or fun. So I didn't write this week until today. Ok, wait, that's not true- I did maybe five hundred rough words sometime earlier this week. I can't even remember when.
But today, I knew I had to get this chapter knocked out, since I do have a deadline. I sat down and wrote a total of about 3500, bringing me closer to my weekly goal of 4k. The problem is that it is yet unedited, and I know I will probably wind up cutting 1k or so words from it. I guess we'll see on Sunday how it went. The real disappointment for me was that I ddin't get in as many actual writing days as I would like. Word count is one thing, but I envy writers who have established writing days. I think it would make me more productive, but most importantly, I think it would make me feel like more of a professional. This week has just been a real disappointment with my goals, because to me, sneaking in a very fast 3500 rought draft just isn't a good foundation to build a career on. So here's hoping the rest of the week goes better!
How about everyone else? How did you do this week?
