I find this topic of writing routines fascinating and wonder how on earth this never came up as a discussion point in the past years!? It’s fabulous. Thanks for sharing.
It’s very interesting many of you average about 1K a day, although you all get to it in different ways.
I probably wrote around 500 a day (averaged out over a year) with my previous way of writing, but it really felt out of balance. Going crazy writing that I lost all track of reality. I think @MarilynAHepburn (aka Stacy) mentioned really struggling with that as well and that’s why she’s not here lately…
For me it’s not really the amount (1K), but the hour I sit down and work on my creative writing, whatever that is. I’m not limiting that to writing this book, or even writing. It might be editing or it could also be planning. But most of all, it should be fun.
Ann, I love how you mentioned wanting to enjoy the process of writing more. I feel the exact same way, and to be honest, it’s something I keep forgetting, so I’m actually making it a part of my daily practice to remind myself before I start writing WHY I’m doing this.
