So this is still going, I had a hell of a hard time getting into the writing regularly thing, and with a massive assignment, and my gorgeous distractions, I stopped writing altogether. I was stressed and grumpy and unsure of how to proceed.
So I took a moment, took a breath and started again. Same goals, same timeline, different start date- and it’s working a dream. With my puppa all settled in and happy as anything, my assignment all submitted and regular working hours taking the pressure off, I’ve managed to write every single day. Perhaps not quite up at the 2k mark I should be writing at, but between 600 and 1200 words a day, which is still more than I was writing before.
I’m also experimenting with dictation again for my fiction, which helps the word count soar- once I get past the oddity of speaking the words instead of just thinking/reading them as my subconscious creativity takes over.
For the most part, I’m loving this whole challenge… even if I got off to a very, very bumpy start.
As for how my baby is settling into his new life, he spends his time playing with toys, running around, sleeping on a chair that is too small for him (his own choice, he has a perfectly massive kennel and a bed…), and sleeping at my feet as I write. I couldn’t be more in love ^.^ [Now just to undo over a year of bad leash manners and we’ll be set :P]
Just a quick writing update, as always- go and write something ^.^
