Clarion West Write-A-Thon: Week 1

So it’s my first week of writing 500 words a day, every day, and MAN, was this way overdue.

The first several days were like pulling teeth. Every word I wrote felt slow and wrong, like I was impersonating a writer (and not doing a particularly good job of it). Nothing seemed to fit in with the rest of the story or go in directions I wanted it to go.

But. After about five days, it got a little easier. When I’d shut my computer, I’d think of what I wanted to write next. I started to see more of the story in my head.

Now, one week in, I feel like I’m starting to hit my stride.

Wanna sponsor me? It’s for a good cause.
