After One Week
JAN BROGAN _ I have to admit, I've had better weeks in terms of pages. But up until Wednesday, I did sit down and work for a solid two hours before I checked my email. Much of that work was research, but some of it was writing down salient points of that research and playing with characters and plot lines.
Wednesday was a total loss, and Thursday and Friday were a bit better. I thought I would make up for lost time on Saturday, but no such luck. I expect today to be my kick-in-the-pants day.
Still, the discipline focused me more on writing than I would be otherwise, and I feel myself getting closer to a new, productive writing schedule.
For those readers just tuning it - the writing challenge is this: Write two pages before checking your email in the morning - if you write in the morning. If you are a late afternoon-evening person, you can check your email in the morning, but not before you start writing. And most important, you can't stop and check email or go on-line (unless its directly related to research for your book) once you start.
It's not too late to sign up now. The challenge has three more weeks left.
How did everyone else do?
