the writer's edition: month 7 check-in
And whilst not writing at full speed this past month - well these past few months - I continue to read, read, read. I will be in the middle of reading a sentence from a random book and a small piece of text will come in to my head. This morning, for example, I was reading dialogue between a couple skirting around a relationship - something completely unrelated to the thought it triggered which was a new scene between Emily and her mother. Bizarre, I know, nothing to do with the 'will they or won't they' that I was reading in the book. I think it's almost a matter of seeing beyond the writing and in to the method, if that makes sense?!
I'm hoping to write more consistently this month. Term 4 begins on Monday and I have my fingers crossed that the warmer weather will mean less lurgies and more opportunities for writing new content. All in my own time of course, there's no place for superwoman here! My original deadline is March - this is to have the 80,000 words finished and ready for editing. That means about 4,000 words per month between now and then... I think I will take it month by month and see. Until next time!
