Here we are, day 12 already. Wow this month is going fast!
I want to applaud Angelina Hanson for being so dedicated and getting up 2-hours early every day to write! And I want to congratulate Lisa Schroeder for completing her first draft! Great job, ladies! These are just a couple of successes and awesome progresses I’ve noticed and wanted to draw attention to them in hopes they may inspire others! Everyone is doing great, even if you are falling behind (like I still am).
This week, though I thought I’d have more free time because I wasn’t working, ended up being not as productive as I’d hope. Several things set me back: the insane amount of time I have to spend planning my wedding (now 2 1/2 months away, eek!), a novel sold last week with a similar premise to my WIP and I freaked out but later realized this means there’s a market for it and my premise is still very very different and unique enough to stand on its own, and querying. Because all I want to do is refresh refresh refresh my email, and I’ve found it’s difficult to get in the writing mind-set until after 5pm when I know the publishing world goes home. (Stupid, considering I’ve received a lot of requests/responses in the evening.)
So today I have a new plan to combat my procrastination. I’m going to lug my computer over a mile to the nearest Starbucks and write there. Wish there was one closer and wish I had a car to drive there, but neither is the case. That’s dedication! Also, I will offer myself rewards for a job well done. If I write over 2k, I get to see Alice In Wonderland tonight!
How is everyone else doing?
