  1. Slacker! I was planning 3,500 words each day so I have time to edit, publish and a week to spare for disatsers.

    I am both excited and nervous.

  2. Hah!

    This is why I decided to join, this quote from their site,

    “Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that’s a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down.”

    I’ve had half a story idea for a couple of months now, but actually went off it recently. I think I’ll just try and churn out 50,000 words for that and be done with it.

  3. I don’t know what they’re on about, I write a lot of crap (story wise) all the time, I then leave it to rot for a few days and give it a good forking over when I’ve forgotten about it enough to make me objective.

    Being a massive optimist there is part of me that thinks if I do enough planning there won’t be any of the big editing jobs to be done (such as cutting out whole chunks of the story or rearranging the plot 🙂 ), but the realist in me keeps saying that I’m deluding myself.

  4. And that should so read “I *know* what you’re on about …” Actually it makes me sound like a stroppy teenager, maybe it’s the voice within. 😉

    Thank goodness for emails to tell me I’ve made a comment on your blog. 🙂
