Writing Restart Update!
As I mentioned previously, I'd re-read an article by James Scott Bell encouraging writers to get up first thing in the morning and get down that first 350 words of the day. So, since I've have a very long dry spell, I started doing just that on December 22.
And in just 20 days, I've written a total of 17,600 words. Or almost a quarter of an average novel's length!
This has been a most excellent exercise for getting my writing engines restarted. My daily writing comprises several different stories, not just one, but still, it's PROGRESS! Something I haven't known for several months.
If you haven't tried this method of motivation already, I strongly encourage you to do so. As you can see, you usually end up with more than 350 words a day when you're done.
Go forth and write!
