Nose to the grindstone

The spring cons and booksignings are behind me. I finished my proposal for my option book. Yay!!! Now it’s time to produce pages, and that means serious writing.

That also means sticking to a writing schedule, which I’ve had great success with in the past. It’s so liberating once I get into the rhythm of writing x number pages a day every day. But it’s a bear to start.

I dunno why. Sort of like starting a diet. For some reason I focus on all the goodies I’ll be missing instead of the great progress I’ll have made a month from now.

There are books I have to read (contest stuff), and one book I’m dying to read. Steph Tyler’s Coming Undone. As soon as Amazon delivers this book–which should be any day–I’m diving in.

For now, it’s back to the trenches keyboard.

    Jan, I’m the same way with writing X number of pages a day. I love to do it, too–and it’s a bear to start with me, too. With my last book, I didn’t get into the rhythm until I was almost done. With this book, I’m going to try to get into the rhythm much earlier.

    Hate it when that happens, Edie. Good luck this time around! I’m still not into a comfortable routine which is really bugging me. Every time I start edging into it, my ill mother needs attention and I have to drop and run. Frustrating times.
