The last couple days were really tricky. Self-doubt set in (note to self, don’t read info about publishing when trying to write!) and I lost both the plot and my writing time.
Frustratingly, I’m now under par, but my plan is to make the words up at the weekend. It’s odd to see the word count stack up, only 16,000 words to finish now and ten days to do it. That feels pretty good though, having such a concrete deadline certainly helps to galvanise you!
The inspiration was flowing today, but I’m a bit concerned that the piece is lacking something – I can already start to see how and where I’ll need to go back and edit. But, that’s all part of the process and once I’m back on par, all things will be right with the world again.
