I’ve been sitting in front of my computer trying to finish the 50,000 words on my first novel I was working on this month and I felt completely blocked. I have the same feeling as I did at the start of the month, a feeling of being a horrible, horrible writer and why on Earth am I doing this. It’s taken me a bit by surprise.
I’ve still got 1,000 words to go and while I think I’ve roughly completed the first draft ending, I know there are places I can go back to, to add sections that I’ve skipped, so meeting the 50,000 word count isn’t impossible, it is just hard to do. I left the sections because I was blocked so I’m not wanting to race back to them. I’d actually much rather skip to the other story I’m working on because that’s still fun to write. I feel a bit like a kid who doesn’t want to do their homework – see I’m procrastinating by writing this blog post!
I will be good though and return to my writing because I know it will be amazing once I have reached the 50,000 word mark for novel one.
Deep breath. Here I go!
