Today’s writing quota was quite good. A mere 200 words last night (because yeah I’m also trying to write before bed now) and a whooping 1400 words this morning.
Today’s quota: 1600 words.
You know how you can surprise yourself sometimes? Fighting with yourself, afraid of the page, then poof, done. So easy.
But this was a love scene, I was writing. I don’t know why but usually writing love scene is easier for me. And I’m left wondering why oh why did I decide to write urban fantasy with close doors. That makes no sense. I must have been high on succeess!! Ahah here’s a good lesson: never take yourself too seriously.
Which gets me to what I learned about writing today (yeah I’m trying to emulate little Arya from Games of Thrones here): this morning I wandered on Facebook to the big writers group I sort of co-own. And lo and behold, among a few great writing questions, there are tons, no TONS of “read my blog/buy my book” posts.
What I learned about writing today…
I had vaguely though of adding my blog there but uh…no. There is too much noise out there, I’ll stay here by myself for a while, thank you very much.
It really doesn’t help to shout out loud in a crowd of people who shoot louder than you. You’ll just get tired.
Just do your thing, be modest. Be consistent. Work at getting better. That is all!
