Half challenge progress
Ive hit 2183 words. I dont know what Im doing. Its a huge battle to keep the internal critic quiet, just repeating to myself that this is only draft. Also trying to keep visits to other blogs to a minimum, it eats too much of my time away. One little browse and the next thing an hour has gone by. I know I could have done lots more, and Im disappointed with myself having taken two days of work to have a nice long weekend but my other roles in life come first. I think I read that on someone else's blog that they dont apologise for making their role as mother/partner etc a priority. It will be all too soon before my role as mother will be minimal, so I might as well make the most of it. I cant write when I know Im needed elsewhere. Just takes so much time to 'get in to the swing' then its time to pack it all up and cook or clean something or go and earn some money. Early days. Im doing the writing scene by scene, just writing what comes, and Ive stopped trying to put it in some sort of flowing order because that was jamming me up and getting confusing.
