Writing every day, days 5-7

I went to a writing retreat this weekend, in hopes of getting away from my regular chores and getting some serious words done. I didn’t do bad, I got a total of 1623 words so far, including the synopsis and storyboard. I didn’t get as many words done as I wanted but I did get some plotting done, with specifics about my hero and heroine, so it’s all good. One other thing I did get accomplished this weekend is that I found a dictation app for my smart phone that I want to use. I do a lot of driving during the day for my work and that can add to my writing time, as well.

The realization for me is that every day is not going to be a thousand word day, like when I’ve had to meet deadlines. I have to be comfortable with each and every word I get.
