I’m up to day 7 of NPI and feeling great about where my writing is at. Not only am I actually seeing progress, but give me a couple more days and I’ll have some things sent out into the world! I’m very excited about getting back into the swing of it all.
The nicest thing though? I’m opening my document at the start of every day again. It’s natural once more, it’s just part of the process that happens once I’ve opened the laptop (which is now sitting prettily on my desk, sans PC, though I am still organizing my assorted ‘stuff’ around it). My story sits there, I can read bits of it, skim through to find where I was at, make small changes in the lead up to my writing time.
Time which I am finding. More than my required 10 minutes even. It sometimes doesn’t happen all at once, but it’s happening. Every day. I am feeling so much better for it.
Also, on a whim, I changed my theme again… I think the other one was kind of wintery and it’s spring now, and I’m loving that spring feeling. I’ll have to get out in the garden and take some pics to sort out a new header, but the fresh green of the stock one for this theme will work for the moment.
Oh, and if you’re in NZ/AUS pop over to Helen Lowe’s blog today – the first novel in her Wall of Night series is now on sale! She’s running a competition and has some guest post lined up for the next few weeks. I have to say that while I liked the blue cover the book has in the USA, I LOVE the red one! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
