Holy crap I was really really lazy this week. For the first half of the month I was doing amazing to keep up with my writing… the past week has been abysmal. Between the 16th to the 20th I didn’t write at all.
What the Fuck Danny?
Honestly, there were a lot of errands I had to run and I had one of those emotional rollercoaster weeks which basically means, um, I just didn’t feel like writing.
This is not a good report for where my writing is since it’s basically, “oops, I messed up” but I did learn somethings.
How To Write Everyday
While setting a goal is great and all there is the one big problem that you’ll come up to. Writing isn’t difficult, developing ideas to write about is very hard on a daily basis. I suffered a 4 day drought and kept thinking, “I’ll make it up tomorrow”. Now I have to make up a few days of not writing really quickly.
A place to write is incredibly important. My favorite place to write (and where I’m writing this now) is the CSI Coffee Pub in Toronto. Ever since I’ve found this place I’ve written every single time I was here and it’s become fairly Pavlovian. If I don’t write when I’m here I feel… off.
The downside is that if I’m completely broke, I can’t afford to pay for transit to get out here and the coffee which I feel I must buy in order to sit here. I doubt they’d kick me out, but I’d feel bad if I didn’t have one.
All in all, I’m behind in my words and I still haven’t got a good enough idea on how to consistently generate ideas. At least today I’ve written quite a bit but now I just need to keep up with that. Currently at 8903 words total and I should be at 10500. Fuck.
