For the last 68 days I’ve written a minimum of 1,000 words per day.
The second draft needed to be a major revision, but I wasn’t making much progress in the endlessly-revisable sandbox of Microsoft Word. To free myself of perfectionism, I put pen to paper. I began writing page one and kept going until I completed the last chapter on Sunday.
I still need to type up about a month of journal pages, fill in a few gaps, cut a few things, and reorganize, but the end is in sight.
