Wow, I have done something I didn't think I could do. I've amazed myself!!!
I've learnt so much doing it.
I've learnt that I need to plot more before I start. I have some major inconsistencies to go back and fix up where a character is acting in a completely different way to how they started.
I've learnt that I can write 500+ words in a 30 minute sprint - if I know what I want to write about.
I've learnt that I can in fact write after Billy is in bed, in front of the television, in the car, while people are talking around me, all of the places and times I said I couldn't - as long as I know what I want to write about next.
I've learnt that if I don't know what I want to write about, I can have perfect peace and quiet and still get no words on the page!
I've learnt that I really can write without succumbing to the perfectionist editing tendencies. They'll come later!
I didn't write every day - but I only had 5 days when I didn't write anything. My best day was 2003 words. My 'worst' was 300.
I'm definitely looking forward to taking a few nights off now and catching up on some reading!
After that, I have some more writing to do! And no excuses for not getting it done :)
