Diary of a bad writer – Week 82

Friday September 25th, 2020: – Before I know it, it will be November NaNoWriMo writing month. I have a project in mind and will focus on writing 1,500 words a day. 500 in the morning, 500 noon, 500 before bed. (My 3 wordy meals a day.) This is my goal, one that I can do If I put my mind to it.

I recommend – take a burden off your shoulder, GIVE YOURSELF A REASONABLE GOAL YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH – You will see that You Can Make It Happen. What’s your reasonable goals?

Business Quote. Stay positive work hard and make it happen

    Thinking positive is always a good thing Darnell. Your ability to dissect the process of writing into tidbits that end up as a whole is an inspiration to writers like me. Discipline has it’s awards.

    That’s fantastic to hear. Your determination is awesome, it would be great to hear more details (especially since I have no writing in me at all right now). Do you know roughly what that 500 words will be before you write it? Or just have a starting point? Is each 500 word chunk following on from the last? Or disconnected? What will you do if the words just aren’t flowing?

      Great questions. Last… they should flow, since I have a rough outline AND a possible ending in mind. First…I don’t know the exact words but I know the story I want to tell so the words should come. Middle…each chunk should follow the other, like one paragraph after another. Sounds good right? I have to make it happen. It will help my growth as a writer. πŸ€—

    I love the powerful positivity in this post, it inspires me to do more creative projects!
    But crikey, all of that alongside your blog, home life & your regular job. Definitely a good idea to split it up into manageable chunks and these sorts of goals can get us motivated, too. You got this, Darnell! xx

    That’s the perfect approach, Darnell πŸ™‚

    For me that’s more or less a chapter a day. That was what I aimed for during NaNoWriMo last year and the year before. It worked well. If I didn’t quite make it to the end of a chapter, I just threw down a few notes for where the story should be going then started a fresh chapter the following day.

    I haven’t decided if I’ll NaNo this year yet, although I do have a project in mind.

      Ahh, a seasoned NaNo writer. I’m still new so taking it slowly with a focus on just writing the story. Im preparing early to make it happen πŸ€—
