Today’s writing session was much better than yesterday’s, not in terms of quantity, but definitely in terms of pace and quality. In 90 minute, I managed to add nearly 1,800 words, 300 short of yesterday’s mark, but still above pace. Better still, I worked steadily and deliberately and I think the result is a scene whose voice and tone is much closer to what I was aiming for than what I wrote yesterday. My work today officially amounted to 1,791 words, giving me a 2-day total of 3,943 words. Here are my official Day 2 stats:
I completed a scene tonight and left off at a point at which I am eager to get started on tomorrow. Tomorrow’s writing session will be earlier in the day, probably while the Little Man naps, because tomorrow evening, Kelly and I are going out, first to dinner and then to a party. By the time we get back it will be late and I doubt I’ll be in any shape to write. As it stands, I wrote this evening, having not slept for well over 36 hours–for some reason, after writing last night, I couldn’t get to sleep. No matter what I tried, I tossed and turned until it was time to get up and go to work.
But I made it through, and I’m eager to get started on the scene tomorrow. I’m not sure I’ll complete that scene tomorrow, as my plan for it is somewhat extensive, but it will be fun to get started.
Here I am, immediately after completing tonight’s writing session. (I wore my Superman shirt especially for the occasion):
How did your second day go? Any problems? Any breakthroughs?
