Progress Friday

I should've stuck with 'nothing' last week, coz I ended up trashing the 4 pages I wrote back then when I sat down to get some progress going on the WIP this week. All in all, none too peeved with myself - I added a total of 17 pages this time around and the material that was in those deleted 4 pages got introduced in more seamless and dynamic manner in the story.

Lesson to remember - never to try to write, at least write sense, when you have jaw pain and are under painkillers! Let's just hope I don't ever have to go to the dentist for that kind of torture again.

So I get onto this weekend pretty much on a good high. The WIP is close to a quarter done, which isn't so bad given that it's been 3 weeks since I'm actively working on it. If I keep this up, I might just have a working writing schedule that will help me ease out a few projects a year.

Now can you people believe it's already Friday? Where did this week go? I've been helping my son with his lessons and revision the past few days as he's having the first term assessment sked at school. That must've used up a good deal of my conscious awake time, because I cannot fathom how we went from Monday to Friday in literally the blink of an eye. I know, I know - I'm always saying this, that time flies and yada yada yada. It's just sooo true though! Time does fly and forgive me if I sound like a broken record!

On that note, I pen off. Hope you all have a nice weekend. I plan to chill a bit and catch up on some reading in the coming days. What's on your agenda?

From Mauritius with love,

Time flies faster the older you get. And, you're so young still.

Glad you're feeling better.

Lol Sandy! I feel like an old wizened branch sometimes because time spins so fast. :)
