"Wow, this contest is just what I needed. It has helped me with focus. I wrote a total of 10,910 words. (7910 for this novel & 3000 in a short story I have been working on…. : ) Thanks for the encouragement."That was last night. I am ever so pleased. I have also noticed the following:
- I am writing faster
- I am less worried about mistakes, I am writing and writing until I hit my word goal and then I go back and fix the mistakes. It is making me flow better. I can focus on the story.
- I am just plain more focused. This is important. I have no lack of imagination, but sometimes I cannot see the forest for the trees. Having a word goal, helps me stay on task.
- I like knowing there are about 170 other people struggling to get their novels written as well. That is nice to know!
BTW - I wrote about 1600 words today.... so I am off to a good start for next weeks check in!
