Slow Progress

So far, Book-In-A-Week has been Chapter-In-A-Week for me. Since I have to go to work, I have to use a modified BIAW plan. I had a tough time getting started on Monday, but I typed up five pages that day. By Tuesday, I was really into the story and even though I had to go to a class at night, I also mananged five pages. Yesterday, I had to take Daughter #3 for a blood test--but while I was in the waiting room I jotted down some ideas. When I got back home, I again wrote five pages. I would like to type up ten pages in a day, but it has not happened yet.

Nevertheless, I made progress and I had fun. It will be interesting to see how many more pages I can type up before the week is through.

You call that slow progress? I am impressed. The book that I want to write is still just in my head!

I hear many books get written on the run and it sure sounds that way for you. I admire your ability to concentrate when you're out and about, at appointments. Keep going! It's going to worth it. :)

I'm amazed at anyone who writes books. Good luck on this one!

I edited a novella this week. New writing ideas for another but didn't get that worked on. But you're right, it is progress!

I can barely type out 1 e-mail a day let alone 5 pages for a story. I admire anyone, like yourself, who can write - it's a special talent. Is your daughter o.k.?
