As I told you lovely readers in a previous blog, I accepted the Great Big Indie Author Launchpad Challenge to write 1000 words a day from September 1st to the 21st.
This challenge has made me discover something amazing about my writing. When I start each day, I write a few sentences to start, maybe 100 words come pretty quickly. Then I get up, get more coffee, look at e-mails all while the page is open on the screen (I have two screens) and I jump back and forth. When I reach about 300 words the narrative begins to flow, it just comes out, and my mind is in the writing space.
The muse has shown up and I am rocking.
That’s the trigger word count for me to go off – 300 words. It seems my brain engages the muse, the engine starts and the story is up and running. Man that is a blast!
Since September 1st I’ve managed to write over 8000 words and if I keep this progress up I will finish this book by the end of the challenge.

Way to go! I am rooting for you.
Thanks Ivan, I’m enjoying it. It’s fun that these two old friends have this in common.
So wonderful Nancy! Sounds like so much fun, all the while doing something you’re so passionate about and ends in a possible script to pursue publishing.
Best of everything sweet lady.
