Day Forty-One: How This Goes

So, as you might expect…I’m going to start doing an awful lot of writing tomorrow. Naturally, I’ll be keeping up with the daily posts to the best of my ability, but I have been wondering about how to handle this exactly.

See, I do most of my better writing at night, and my work schedule means that there are times where I’ll sit down really wanting to write in the evening and end up working until the small hours of the morning. It’s a little bit of a burden to try and write a recap after doing that—and some of my daily posts arrive late enough as it is—so what I think I’m going to do is start posting each day’s word count and thoughts on the following day (example: I’ll post something tomorrow, but I won’t post about what I wrote until Tuesday). This way, I can start off the work day with a review of what I accomplished the day before and treat the writing of the daily post like something of a warm-up exercise.

It’s something that I’ll try out for the first week, anyway. After that, I might change the format some…but if it seems to be working, I’ll stick with it.

I’m actually really excited to be moving forward with this novel, readers. I feel really good about what I have planned, and I’m glad that I have the opportunity to share it with you all. I’m also pretty jazzed (for completely nerdy reasons) that writing starts on Day Forty-Two.
