Day 23 – Writing my novel in 100 days: When you’re on a roll, keep writing.

It’s rare when ideas start flowing and you just can’t stop it.

For the last couple of weeks, I haven’t been writing enough to get me going with my story.  I spent a lot of time reading and rereading the first 3 chapters and editing the 3 chapters that came after that. Something didn’t feel right. I was clearly satisfied with the first 3, but the other chapters just fell flat.

And then yesterday happened. I sat down late afternoon, doing the same thing I’ve been doing for days now—reading the first three chapters. Suddenly, new ideas started flowing in. I started to write and I couldn’t stop writing. Things began to make sense. Everything seemed clearer. I ended up rewriting the last few chapters.

Today, I’ve spent most of the day writing and it feels good. It’s been a while since I’ve had a moment of like this, where writing almost feels like I’m reading a good book.  I can’t help but want to keep turning the page.

  1. Yes, love it when inspiration to write starts rolling and the ideas flow with ease. Like you said, “feels like I’m reading a good book. I can’t help but keep turning the page.” Good for you!
