Hey, I tried that write or die today. I wrote 449 words in 11 minutes. That was kind of fun.
I don't think I could keep that pace up without getting some serious carpal tunnel or unless I had a clear idea of what I wanted to say.
How is everyone doing on the motivation front? I'm not finding my story flows as easy as I'd expected. While I can empathize with my MC--a victim of date rape--and our home lives were quite similar, I think I need to do more digging to find out what I'm getting wrong here.
At 14K, I'm a little behind my daily goal (for 75K) but if I hadn't spent most of last night procrastinating about calling my mum (what do you say to someone who is dying without sounding banal... or crass??) and in tears, I would have caught up. As it were, some of last night's word count was not actually story related, so I need to cut them from my count... leaving them in would feel like cheating
