It’s Saturday morning and my week of writing is coming to an end. I’ve loved every second of this week off from my real work and it’s been reminding me of my dreams of making this my everyday life. Instead of going to my work as an IT manager I would get up early to follow my girl to school before going back home to write all day, just as I’ve been doing this week.
I had a goal to reach with my writing this week, and I made it! I would have to pass 250 pages written, and I did (writing about 10-15 pages a day - I had to work Thursday so I didn’t get much writing done that day). I thought, when setting that goal, that I would be finished with the story as I did, but it has taken another turn as I’ve been writing so now I’m setting my sights on 300 pages for the end. It’s the first book in what I hope will be a serie of at least three books. But we’ll see about that. First focus is getting through writing this one. By tomorrow I hope that I’ve passed 270 pages, but weekend writing is hard as my little family is home with me and of course they want my attention too. I’ve promised myself that I would be done with the first draft of the story by the end of September so I still have time. After that a few of my family and friends will read it through and give me feedback so that I can use the month of October for editing. I hope I can stick to that plan! Fingers crossed 🤞🏻
Are you a writer? How do you find the time to write?
