I killed a pad of A4 and in 2 months, 2 weeks I’ve written 135 pages of this project. I don’t obsess over data but it’s nice to know what I’ve done and to see that the practice works for me.
So I’ve left things at a good point and tomorrow will see another pad started as I keep going. Another two months will take me to roughly the end of the first draft and then I will be back and working on rewriting an older project. I have a better instinct for my work now and I know that i can and have written. That lends courage which feeds the practice. I don’t rush or agonise, I just maintain until it’s done and then start again. New challenges emboldened by former victory.
