I’m in the home stretch on this draft of my WIP. I’ve written at least 1000 words every day for the past 22 days which makes my heart go pitty-pat. Or something like that. Oh drat. An unintentional rhyme.
Not only do I feel better about myself as Writer but I think Zippy, Wildebeest, and Zebu have a different perspective now, too. They ask if I’ve done my words for the day and are very respectful of my Writing – Please Do Not Disturb sign on my door. It’s so much easier for me to write when I do it on a daily basis; the continuity definitely lubricates my brain. Plus, I make sure to start each session with my figure eights so as to kick-start my left and right brains.
Apologies if I sound a bit evangelical it’s just that it feels good. And for far too long, it wasn’t feeling good.
Note: This morning the critic started up in my brain so I rephrased the criticism in R’s raspy voice and LAUGHED. I swear, R’s given me the best damned gift!
If you haven’t done your writing today, please make the time to get it done. Set a realistic goal and do it! You’ll feel good, I promise.
