"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
Day 7 went well, I wrote over 2,300 words, so I surpassed my personal wordcount goal of 1775. My total is 13,395 and I am so excited about it. I love the idea of writing a fat first draft, full of ideas and also holes, full of mistakes and also beauty, full of promise. I am still excited about this project and now we're into Week 2. I couldn't ask for more.
I'm also discovering what I need to work on in my fiction writing - dialogue and setting/place. That's encouraging because now I know what I need to do - study other writers I admire, see how they do it. There are so many teachers in this world and I am so willing and ready to learn.
