Just over 13,000 words. A far cry from 50,000 but it was fun trying.
Again, real life got in the way, even during the week I took off for it. Never mind. It was the best fun I’ve had writing in ages.
One thing I took from this year’s attempt was that I really need to dedicate “proper” time to my writing and by “proper” time I mean dedicating working time, that is treating it like a second job, to my writing. Especially if I want to ever think about doing it for a living.
The problem with that is, with two part time jobs and all the stuff I’ve dedicated time to in the evenings, I don’t really have the working time to spare.
Oh, hold on… I’ve just quit the job with the after-school care. Looks like I might have the time after all…
