We are two days into the writing week. So far, I'm +5000 words! Already the week has been a success in my eyes.
Today we learned the benefits of having a reward to strive for. Peanut M&M's! Write 1000 words, get M&M's. It works!
Today's writing was smoother than yesterday's, because I took the time last night to 'compost' the scenes I'd be writing today. It made things easier when it came time to put words on the screen.
I was surprised, however, when my friend asked me to read a scene aloud how awkward it felt. This is a first draft, so there are holes, errors and rough patches. I noticed redundancies, clunky phrases, and lack of clarity. I have much to do on rewrites.
Tomorrow we'll be halfway through the week. I didn't know what a realistic goal for the week would be, but 10K words seems within reach. That would be so great.
We've planned another writing week before summer is over. Maybe by the time it rolls around, I'll be doing rewrites.
