“I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shovelling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.”
Overview: As I was writing today, I kept having to stop myself from looking back at what I had already typed, as I knew that once I start reviewing and editing, I will never make any progress. Editing can wait until December – I need to focus on just getting my thoughts out first.
Suggested word count: 3,333
Actual word count: 4,086
Today’s contribution: 2,220
Satisfaction: 9/10. Could have written more if I had the time was able to focus better.
Progress: I didn’t start writing again until late in the evening, as I spent most of the day still cleaning and unboxing. Nevertheless, I made good progress in terms of the word count. I found myself looking through youtube and amazon at times, my thoughts wondering all over the place. I have all these things to say, but it’s hard to put them into words, and the urge to write and re-write and re-write and re-write is strong.
