Early Morning Writing

The pace of my writing for my second book has crept to a crawl. As to why, I'm not totally sure. Maybe I needed more of a break after the first one. Gone are the days of writing 2000 per day. At this point I feel proud to make it over a thousand. I've switched things up and that helps. Instead of writing at the kitchen table or in the living room I now write early in the morning when my kiddos are sleeping. The distractions are gone and I can focus on the text at hand.

My goal is to complete the book before RWA Nationals and I think I shouldn't have a problem.

New Experiment - Dictating my Words

My word count lately has been quite low. I am switching things up a bit by dictating my words into Microsoft Word. I wonder if it will be faster or slower, but either way, the key is to be productive and make some progress on my WIP.

Friday Mad Typist Challenge - 5000 Words

Well, it appears my application is approved. I don't feel any different though. :D

Perhaps my breakfast may be tastier now that I am PRO for RWA.

Well, I am going for it again. I was a few bucks short of 4000 words last time. I'm going for it again today. It would be nice to get a generous bump up in the word count of my book.
