So October was a rather sucky month for me writing wise. Not one in the month did I meet my daily word count (1K since sometime in May.) My monthly word count was lower than the previous months, but according to my spreadsheet I met the word count I was supposed to even if it was rather low.
I was rather spotty as well. I would write one day, skip the next and then write the next day and so on. Normally if I don’t meet my goals, I don’t throw a fit. But compared to my previous months, clearly I was out of whack.
I was talking to one of my writer friends about it and she asked me why I thought I had underperformed. It wasn’t because I wasn’t inspired rather I wasn’t really motivated.
Looking back at the month in review, I can confidently say that was the problem. I just kind of slacked off. My discipline, I need it back. I’ve written 894 words today. Closer to my goal. I’m going to still work towards writing the 1k.
Other than that, related to my writing, I ordered some books that will help aide my in research of my series. So I’ll probably be returning to the RL series instead of just focusing on the TMC verse. So exciting.
Until next time, guys. And good luck to those of you who are participating in NaNoWriMo.
