How I write


Just a quick post to update you a little on how I’m getting on with writing every day this month.

Not bad so far. I’ve written properly, working on my WIP Reunion, most days. The days I don’t have given me the opportunity to start planning my next story – which to me counts as work on my writing.

That’s been really nice, to get back to planning which I always enjoy. But doing work every day on my writing has made me compare how I’m doing now writing/working on writing every day with my usual ‘method’ of working on it most days but not every single day.

The highest word count I’ve managed in one day, writing this way, is about 600 which for me isn’t bad. However a few times before this month, when I wasn’t working on my WIP every day, I could do well over 1000.

So the question I’m pondering is this: is it better to write every day and do less each time, but have the total add up to quite a lot, or is it better to write a bit more sporadically but write in heftier chunks?

I’d love to hear your thoughts! šŸ™‚

    1. Yeah, I’m thinking that after January’s over I might take a break from doing it every day. Having said that, it’s been a good discipline for me to get in to, especially as I can get a bit lazy about working on my writing sometimes. Because after all, no matter how much we enjoy it, it is work. šŸ™‚


  1. I think it’s a tricky one as what works for some people won’t work for others. I think writing every day is a good discipline to get into and maybe over time it will come naturally writing every day and maybe even your average word count will increase (although I think 600 words a day is pretty good going anyway).


    1. Thanks Kate. Yeah, if I can stick to writing every day I will because I am progressing quite well. I guess it’s ultimately down to me after this month has ended, if I will be able to keep the momentum going. šŸ™‚


    1. Thanks ReGi. That’s kind of what I’m doing. I didn’t feel up to sitting at my desk with my laptop last night so I curled up on the sofa and did a load of planning for the next story instead. šŸ™‚
