Have to admit, sometimes it can be hard, really fucking hard to be a writer. In fact, it fucking sucks. Some people, if they don’t like their job, they can just change. That unfortunately, is never an option for me. I’m too invested. Even though I don’t read as much as I used to, I still can’t stop. I probably won’t stop until the day I die. And when I think about the fact that I’m pretty much in this to the very bitter end…well, it is terrifying, no two ways about it.
I got 10k in the last seven days. It seems like 10k a week is fairly common. What a shame. I need to up that to 20k a week. 20k a week means I have to write 2.8k a week, and that would be around 60k a month. I can do 2.8k. I really wish I hadn’t wasted two weeks on drawing. I can’t afford to take breaks like that when this could be my last year to completely devote to writing.
I’ve got to write 3.2k for the next 10-12 days if I want to complete SUMMER LOVER by the 7th, which just might be enough time to get it to a line editor. I won’t have time to get it through to a dev editor. My fault. If I didn’t take 2 weeks off, I would’ve had enough time. I keep sabotaging myself and then wonder why I’m always behind. I really need to get my ass in gear.
Today, I’m going to try to write 3.2k of SUMMER LOVER.
