Creativity flows like a river, but often meets a dam.
Decided to set myself an action plan each week, hoping it will help get things done.
One of the things that are written on my action plan for each day is to write at least 500 words on one of the novels I’ve been working on.
500 words isn’t really a lot when you look at it, but when you sit there and write a large chunk, you’ll find the word count just isn’t your friend.
And some days I find I just don’t reach my 500 word target. I’m usually a 100 or so short.
I know I shouldn’t be so hard on myself really as I am actually getting some words down.
But when you look at that little word count and you see you just haven’t made it, it can be a little disheartening.
