It is frustrating that the past two days were too insane for me to write, but I have found myself creating new routines in the midst of finishing my novel.
I have always prided myself on self-discipline but with many things, usually the most disciplined can be the easiest to trip up. It is as if once we start to slide, our feet come out from under us. I am fighting that very urge which is why I am back today. Forging on to post a blog post a day.
My goal of 3,000-4,000 words a day for my novel is being achieved “bird by bird” as Lamont puts it, and it is becoming easier to craft the story as it has simmered for so long in my subconscious and been outlined for months. It is simply the discipline to put it on the page already.
