GUYS

GUYS

I MET MY WORD COUNT TARGET BY 4:30 TODAY

AND EVEN WENT A LITTLE BIT OVER

WHICH MEANT I DIDN’T HAVE TO WRITE ANY MORE WORDS FOR THE REST OF THE DAY IF I DIDN’T WANT TO

BUT I DID

BECAUSE I ACTUALLY WANTED TO

EVEN THOUGH I WASN’T WRITING A SUPER-EXCITING SCENE

AND THE WORDS WEREN’T FLOWING BRILLIANTLY OR ANYTHING

IN FACT I KEPT EDITING BITS AND PIECES THAT WEREN’T QUITE RIGHT SO IT TOOK ME A LITTLE LONGER THAN IT SHOULD HAVE

BUT IT DIDN’T MATTER BECAUSE I WAS WRITING AND IT FELT OKAY

AND MAYBE THAT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE A BIG DEAL TO YOU

BUT TO ME, AFTER THE WAY I’VE BEEN STRUGGLING TO WRITE THESE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS*, IT TOTALLY IS

AND THIS IS JUST THE FIRST DRAFT EVEN

I HOPE THIS HAPPENS AGAIN TOMORROW

BUT EVEN IF IT DOESN’T I THINK I COULD GO ON SLOGGING FOR QUITE A WHILE JUST KNOWING THAT THIS *CAN* HAPPEN, SOMETIMES, MAYBE

I’D ALMOST FORGOTTEN WHAT IT WAS LIKE

* Even if you’d never know it from the way my last two books turned out, because I’m actually very pleased with the end result. But the actual writing process was Not Fun At All.
