Progress report time!
Tremendous progress, I’m proud to say! I’ve finally, finally, finally been making headway with SJL! Yes, that’s the novel project, yesyesyes!
There was something about the way I was feeling during the last update that made me feel particularly frustrated with myself. I realized that for years I have been over-thinking things. Aiming high and so hung up on the potential for failure that I get nowhere. On Monday, I sat down for hours in front of the computer and simply wrote, without thinking.
And man, it felt good.
So over the course of the week, I’m just making it a point to sit down every day and do a little bit on SJL, something, anything. I remind myself that right now my focus is just to get it all out. I can refine it all later, that’s what editing’s for. It may all be a bit discombobulated right now, but it won’t always be that way. If I don’t sit and write something, then I’ll never have anything to edit.
So having said that, I’m off to get in my required time spent with the project.
