It's Friday, so I have to blog about something!



For some reason, all of my recent entries have been on Fridays. I'm not sure why that is, but now posting on Friday feels compulsory. So here I am even though I don't feel particularly inspired.

Please bear that in mind as you read the three scattered thoughts to follow.

  1. The 1000-word-a-day plan is going well--although the next few weeks are rife with school holidays and minimum days so I will have more mom-responsibilities than usual and it might be difficult to stay on track.

  2. The story is coming together. I still have a lot of unanswered questions, but I feel pretty confident (most of the time) that I'll find the answers eventually.

  3. I think the nice thing about having a word count goal is that it keeps you working, even when you don't feel like writing--even when you're uninspired. Hey! That's kind of like having a must-blog-on-Fridays policy!


So there you have it! Uninspired and compulsory, but also done!

See you next Friday!

Friday posting sounds just fine to me. (S)

Do you find that even when you start out uninspired, you'll hit on something that gets it flowing? I love when that happens.

Yes! It's great when that happens!

And for me, anyway, feeling inspired doesn't seem to have much to do with the end result. Of course it all feels easier when I am inspired, but the quality of the work is just the same, no matter how inspired I felt when I wrote it.
