Which will it be today: meta-writing or writing-for-reals? *w/update
I am so completely in awe that it hurts a little bit. In a good way.
Also, I am inspired.
Today I am writing. Not so much writing-about-writing, and more ACTUAL writing.
(I’ll update with my progress later.)
My hours at the coffee shop netted:
- 1,500 new words
- review and reworking of the outline – after the end of the first-draft-with-the-wrong-voice, it became clear that what I thought was the real story was not, in fact, the real story – the rough outline I work from had to change
- visit with one of my favourite teenagers, who dropped by while I was working there – we talked about New York (one of her potential college cities) and my recent visit there
- new drink experiment: Dark Cherry Mocha – definitely worth a repeat trial
I’ll go back today and hope to double the word count.
