I spent the past few days playing around with the website- okay not exactly playing- trying to find a design that worked best for me and you. I created a section titled “My books” and am ashamed to say I had to search through my computer for a while to remember the summary of some of my books. At the end of it all, I came up with two things
- Tracking my progress- I created a word meter (just like the one in NaNoWriMo) with 2 stories I plan to complete by the end of the summer. That way, if I do go a few days without writing, I’ll be compelled to make my word meter move by 1%
- Cutting myself some slack- I’m a perfectionist/control freak (= engineer) and I also tend to find several projects to work on for self-improvement in different aspects of my life (in other words I think too much). While browsing through old files, I found comments and reviews from readers and critique partners, and realized I’d almost forgotten that writing is fun too!
So dear friends,
- What you are writing right now? – Share title, genre, summary
- What do you do when stress sucks fun out of writing?
