Got up about 8:30 this morning. Fed the dogs. Fed myself. Checked e-mail, Facebook, etc while watching TV.
Sat down for a 45 minute writing session at about 10:15
Wrote 1700 words.
Took a 30 minute break to farm some orange and pearlescent items in Borderlands 2. Yup. I’m THAT writer.
Made lunch. Ate lunch with Kevin. Realized that about 500 words of what I had written earlier was out of continuity. This did cause a little writing panic as I didn’t want to delete what I’d done and take away from my word count.
Rather than delete those 500 words, I save them to another document to be used at a later date as it was a really good scene. Or at least, what I think is a really good scene.
Did some laundry for Kevin. Did dishes. Cleaned up after lunch.
I sat down for another 20 minutes around 4pm to reorganize what I had written earlier and finish the book. I wrote about 800 words. The book is done. I’ll need to go through and check for spelling and grammar errors.
After I finished the book, I did another couple of farming runs in Borderlands 2 to celebrate.
I want to get one more 45 minute writing session in before bed. I hope to get 1500-2000 words done during that time.
I’ll edit here if I get it done.
What I did for my process today was write on my Microsoft Suface, sitting on the couch with a lap desk, running a Pandora station created with Phutureprimitive. I used a sand hour glass to time the 45 minutes. My main distractions were the dogs who insist I cuddle with them while I write. I’ll need to brainstorm what to start tonight. Possibly book 3 in this series or perhaps continue another series. I will let you know what I decide.
