1000 words is 1000 words.
I’m getting my pacing back. It feels good. Knocked out another 1000 words in GRPC3 putting us up to 7500 words.
It’s satisfying to be putting words down again. I feel like a creative weight has been lifted and my brain can focus again. I’m confident many creative friends now feel the same way and I hope others are able to start creating once more.
In the coming days, we’ll see if I can keep pace. I’d like to step up the word count, but I’m not going to pressure myself as I’d done in the past only to work too hard and burn myself out because I’m putting too much pressure on myself.
Slow and steady is my current goal.
I’m also doing that with my reading. I’m slowing reading 3 books at the same time. I started Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings. You know, light reading. I’m also reading and trying to finish Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography Born to Run. Third on the list of Obama’s A Promised Land.
I won’t discuss politics here. I’ve read many a presidential autobiography and this one feels like the first where the man wrote the words on the page instead of dictating to someone else to write the words for him. At least that’s my impression. It reads like a speed he would give instead of aggrandizing a story with words I’d never heard the person speak.
At any rate, it’s late, and I’m tired.
Until Next Time!
