What I'm learning this month...

In taking on the Novel Track challenge, I've learned these things so far:
  • I can write at least 350 words per day.
  • I can't edit a blank sheet but I can edit words and sentences.
  • The act of writing stimulates the creativity center (sometimes)
  • Good work can come on days when I just muscle it through with no inspiration.  
  • I have trouble stopping at 350 words.
  • Having over 12,000 words and the month is only half over encourages me to write on.

Mary DeMuth, who sets a standard for orderly determination in her writing, gives some excellent advice in an article for Writer's Digest.  

Write on!
