Yes, we have a spring rain today. I filled the bird feeder and brought my tomato seedlings back inside so they don’t catch a chill. I’m still waiting to make the new raised beds for them, since it’s been too soggy to dig so far.
But I have done a little bit of writing. Only 868 words last week, for a total of 70543 on the novel. Not sure why I felt so stuck, but I did. This week is better already.
I aim for slow-but-steady, and I’ve made progress. Already this year I’ve written more than all of last year, and last year I didn’t write at all until November’s NaNoWriMo challenge. That’s when I started the novel I’m working on now.
I’m happy to slowly increase my word counts, but that’s not how the most successful indie authors work. I wanted to point out two different threads over at the KBoards Writers Cafe, where two different authors, who have both sold a ton of books to many happy readers, talk about their process as working writers. Both write like crazy, more hours a day than I can imagine. Both give clear and challenging descriptions of how to publish and promote multiple novels a year, and why readers love it.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep writing. And maybe tomatoes soon.
