I'm attempting to write a new book. So far I have finished a Junior novel, written about seven short stories. Even though I feel like I am just going through the motions of writing, it still feels better than sitting still thinking about writing.
Its pretty dry at this point. I'm writing a lot in the passive voice. There are not many power verbs. I do have an outline. So, there's a plan and evidence of a work in progress. Now, I just have to keep working every day on keeping the word count going.
I can't imagine anything but good coming from the experience. At this point, it just seems very artificial. My goal is to keep going, even if I don't like it. Instead of toiling over each and every word, I'm plowing through. It's a new technique for me really. Most writers talk about the amount of writing they do in a day being critical to moving forward as a writer. Go figure. Writers need to write. Well, I'm writing. . .
