I’m writing my first novel and my starting momentum has been great. I’ve been able to write the first four chapters in the last four days. With any luck, I’ll be able to finish the book inside a month!
I’m having a great time teaching myself to write. It is exciting to see where these characters are going. Earlier today when I finished the chapter up, I really wanted to keep going but I know myself – I work better if I cut it short and let my engine run overnight. Stephen King talked about the mind being like a sieve and good ideas being like sand too large to fall through. I agree 100%.
That said, my mind was buzzing. I ran into the gym 15 minutes before it closed and knocked out a super set. 🙂 At least I’ll be able to sleep.
