Day 93 – The Final Stretch

Happy 4th of July! It’s been weeks since I last blogged. I thought I’d update you guys on how my 2nd book is going. Like I mentioned before, I am giving myself 100 days to finish the first draft of my 2nd book so here we are—day 93. I have exactly a week to finish what I set out to do and I’m really excited about it. I am happy to say that I have been making a lot of progress lately. I already know how I want the story to continue and end. It’s just a matter of getting everything written down, so tonight I will attempt to do just that. I will write as long as I can and see how far I can go with the story.

Wish me luck.

Day 20 – Writing projects…

I’m making progress. Slowly, but I’m making progress. So far, I’ve got 6 chapters. I wrote 2 chapters since I last blogged, which is better than nothing. I keep changing my mind about certain things, but I’m pushing myself to just keep writing. I find myself editing a lot. I can’t help it. It’s just the way I write. I can’t move on to the next chapter unless I know the other ones worked.

Aside from writing my second novel, I’ve also been working on a personal memoir/essay that I’d like to enter in a competition for Writers Digest. I’ve done a couple of drafts already. I just need to edit it. I’ve got a couple of weeks left before it’s due. That’s all for now…

Day 11 – Getting back to writing

Wow, it’s been 6 days since I last blogged. I would’ve preferred to keep writing but I had my radiosurgery last week. It was an interesting experience. And while the frame was being screwed on to my head (yeah, I’m not kidding), the only thing I could think of was writing my next chapter.

The next day, after my outpatient procedure, I got up at 6 am and went in front of my computer and started writing. I had to. It felt right.

I realized that writing isn’t just something I love to do. It is something I need to do.
