Writing journal, day 3 & 4

I don't know if you've notice the page count going down over there, but it is. Writing is going. There will be no revising until the weekend. I only look back a sentence or two to pick up the story. There is no editing.

I turn this piece in to my writer's group on Sept. 11. That's a big motivation. I'd like to have a big chunk of it done by then. I've basically been writing every spare moment, blocking out stuff with the headphones. Knowing my own work habits, which are sporadic--a spurt of activity followed by a period of non-activity--I'm taking advantage of the motivation.

I'll be interested to see how the revising goes this weekend.
