Day What How Much Duration Pen Ink
  • 28 July
  • 29 July
  • 30 July
  • First draft of “Constant as the Northern Star”.
  • More thereof.
  • Third draft work on “The Golden Oracle”, which is “Yellow” no more
  • 7 manuscript pages.
  • 5 pages.
  • Mainly marking limbs that need attention; the chainsaw is yet to come out.
  • 45 min.
  • 30 min.
  • 35 min.

Once again, I find myself setting down a story in the midst of the first draft, because some elements of it aren’t setting up properly.  Since I’m not (yet) a professional writer and lack mentors to lean upon, I’m not sure how to count this behaviour: sensible nipping in the bud of a nascent block, or cowardly retreat in the face of minor opposition.  Until informed otherwise, I’ll let vanity nudge me toward the former.

Besides, finishing a story that’s got a couple of drafts is important, too, danggummit!  Can’t submit something that’s mostly finished!
