Confessions of a Realistic Writer #8
Summary of My Week
I struggled this week. I had some huge successes, but a few disappointments too. I’ve remained motivated and committed to write. Yet I had a few life circumstances that kept me from writing. And that was hard. Wanting to write, but not being able to do is a different hurdle than not being able to write.
I wrote most days, but there were a few days that I just didn’t have time and it didn’t work out. I desperately wanted to write, but coming home from vacation kind of threw me off. I also left my laptop charger and won’t be able to write until I get a new one!
I was able to keep writing during my vacation. I made some really good revisions, I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made. I felt productive and hopeful during my writing sessions. It’s nice to feel motivated and committed to writing. Even though I know there are still challenges ahead for my novel, I’m feeling very confident that I can do and learn whatever I need to in order to one day be a published author!
Thoughts and Goals
The day I traveled home, I landed in the morning and could have had time to write. But I was so busy adjusting to the time change and taking care of my child that I completely forgot to write. When I realized the next day that I had forgotten to write, I was disappointed. The only reason I didn’t write was because I forgot! I was frustrated with myself. But nothing could change the fact that I didn’t write. I couldn’t go back in time and remind myself to write. But I can take precautions to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
So my goal for this week is to set a time to write. I’m going to set an alarm and really schedule my writing time this week. I can’t wait to see how it goes.
Until next time,
