So by now I realize I am not a novelist, but I’m chugging away anyway at an astounding 3,953 words in six days! I’m not including today because I haven’t had time to even try yet, but there’s still some time after dinner. I’ve found when the writing is “flowing” that I write about 500 words an hour, so considering that I should really be writing 2,000 words a day, that’s four hours a day. Well, I don’t have that kind of time, so I need to become less anal in my writing and/or just start flying by the seat of my pants! The fact that I don’t know how to do either of those things is irrelevant (I’m too tightly wound to do otherwise!!!). I’m still enjoying it, though I’d enjoy it a lot more if I were on track. I need to get that “different drummer” whose beat I’m marching to to go to doubletime!
