Today I did some volunteer work before I got into writing, cleaning. That makes me feel good inside. The rain was falling from the sky, I grabbed a big cup of coffee and then I wrote 821 words. Yes, I´m book-keeping the amount of words I´m writing! It keeps me going, it does not matter if it feels as if I´ve done enough for today. I know if I´ve done it or not.
Actually, I found out that I´m improving my writing enormously when I count the words. Let´s say that I have to write 5 000 words in every chapter., and that I have written 4 500 words so far. Now I have to really look deep into the text, and find the little hidden places where I can put another 500 words. I found out that it is all about improving my description of people and places. It´s greate!
How many words are you writing each day?
