Writing…no matter what

Despite a tumultuous day/evening I have completed chapter 39. It is hard to believe when I look back at the print preview how far I’ve come. As you may know by now I only tackle one chapter a week. I look forward to writing each and every Saturday no matter what. Today was going to be hard I knew…and I didn’t get started until far later than I’d like and there were many things standing in my way. But despite that the chapter clicked away, new ideas springing out of nowhere. The book is taking shape and is drawing close to the epic ending I’ve been envisioning for nearly a year.

One thought keeps popping into my mind as I write. “What am I going to do when I’m finished with this book?” I enjoy writing it so much, have no ideas for anything in the future once it is done, so I guess I will just play that by ear and enjoy it for now. I didn’t know a few years ago that writing would become such an important thing to me and something that has helped me considerably to deal with the stresses of everyday life.

I love writing. Like this post if you do too.

Nothing will keep me from my writing night…I hope

Neither hell nor high water nor a possible broken toe will keep me from my writing night. I’ve just finished another chapter. I cannot believe how this book has taken shape. Even though I’m tired and quite burnt out from the week, I just can’t fathom not writing my one chapter.

So for weeks now Saturday is my day and I love it. Tonight started a little rocky though, just wanting to get a little laundry done while I wrote I tried to clear off the washer with one hand (I don’t recommend that).

Bam! Something heavy falls and lands on my big toe. Can you say ouch?! I had just finished my run and was quite glad for being able to run…irony. Gotta love it.

So with bruised (hopefully not broken toe) I set out to write my chapter. Why do I choose Saturday night?

Normally I do so because I can sleep a little longer the next day. Unfortunately, tomorrow we have an early start. I contemplated not writing and getting some rest instead. But as I stated…I just can’t fathom not writing my one chapter on Saturday.

Wonder what will happen when the book is finished. Will I enjoy writing free Saturdays, or miss it terribly and have to start something else?

Guess we’ll see.

My other book did quite well on Smashwords in July, I had hoped to have 100 copies “sold” (which means given away for free). I reached 98. I was a little bummed at first, but it was a personal and silly goal anyway and I came pretty darn close, so I’m very happy.

Thank you to those who have read it and reviewed it so far. I look forward to others in the future 🙂
