Sunday Night School – Day 11

I have decided to take the day off.

If there aren't any more entries after this one, then it turned out to be more than a day.

Sunday Night School – Day Ten

Looks like what "tomorrow" brought was more of the same. Another writing spurt after midnight and then not much else.

Sunday Night School – Day Nine

I started strong after midnight but couldn't get much going during the day. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Sunday Night School – Day Eight

Act two of the current story is considerably shorter than the one before (and most likely also shorter than the one to come). Thus I was able to write it from beginning to end in a single day.

Though this wasn't the epic writing day I had yesterday, I did manage to do enough work to get back on my 2k per day pace. I hope I can keep it up.

Sunday Night School – Day Seven

Today I decided that if I was going to do this at all that I needed to make a complete commitment to it. No more "maybe I'll write and maybe I'll do something else." Time to do or do not. There is no try.

If that's my mindset, then for today at least it worked. I cleared 4000 words with less than five minutes to spare before the stroke of midnight. Act one of "VIB" is complete, and the rest of the story is at least framed in my mind. The rest is just scribbling, right?

Sunday Night School – Day Six

And on the heels of every success walks a day like this. Today I had no particular excuse for a poor performance, but I turned one in anyway.

At least it wasn't a complete zero.

Sunday Night School – Day Five

With Independence Day behind me, I've managed to bounce back a bit.

The real key to getting moving again was switching stories. That's a real blessing of the collection format: unlike novel work, if I get stuck on one story I have four others I can switch to. So I set aside the detail-heavy piece that had me shut down and switched to something more up my traditional alley.

I topped 3700 words for the day, so the new track is working so far.
