50k in 50 Days! - Day Nineteen

Word Count: 9,658/50,000

It's day seventeen of the 50,000/50 Writing Challenge and I just spent the last three hours staring at my computer screen.  I reached my 1,000 word goal yesterday but today I only wrote about 300 words.  Maybe I'll have been luck when I try again later.

At least you're still trying!!! You rock! Keep it up and for all you know you'll be able to add 1,000 more tonight!

Three hundred down and only seven more to go. Some progress is better than none! :)

300 is nothing to sneeze at. About the blank screen, I've been where you are so many times that it's not funny. What has helped me is that I know what I am going to write about before I sit down. The scene cards & 8-Part Story Structure have made a phenomenal difference. It's still too early to know if this method will carry me to the end, but it's looking good so far.

Keep going! It'll work out. I've got almost 15k with the 700 I did today. But I've got family coming in for the next week and a half, so I expect to slow way down. I've also had to go back and edit ch 2 so I can give something workable to my crit group. Le sigh.

Well, I'm still at 0 for the day. Tee hee. But you're getting there, and we have plenty of days left, right?

Like the new layout, by the way!

Sarah,

Instead of staring at your screen, you might want to try getting a notebook and pencil and writing it out in longhand. Try it - you might like it. Sit down, open your thoughts to the characters and the story and just start writing. Let it flow without editing. The first thought that comes to mind, start writing and see what happens.

Best of luck!
