Sorry it's late today!
Today’s writing quota will be harder to reach than yesterday’s. Today, your brilliant idea for the next scene must wait until later in the day to be added to the story. Adding to that, the joy of beginning your story has started to fade. Writing is starting to feel like what it really is – work.
Make no mistake – writing is a lot of work. It’s hard and virtually thankless. It takes hours to compose something read in five minutes. However, there is nothing quite like it. Writing is fun, in between all the moments where you want to pull your hair out.
If you want to get to the point where writing is fun, you’re going to have to write even when you don’t feel like it. That’s right – I said to write even though it feels like work. Once you finish that scene, you will understand why I’m encouraging you to keep going. Even if it’s not fun yet, you will be proud of what you have accomplished even when you’re tired.
