Today was not a good day to write- I was out the entire day and when I came home I had felt utterly exhausted. All I wanted to do was to just lie down and watch a nice movie (a romantic comedy or something that doesn’t make my heart jump and doesn’t require my brain to think) and then go to bed. But, alas, I had to open the story and continue writing it. But I have to keep reminding myself that I love writing and that’s why I’m doing this- all writers, no matter how famous, face deadlines.

But it’s very interesting how my life interferes with my writing- my social life affects the time that I can write and the time I have to write, while my emotions affect my motivation. Like today- I just did not feel like doing any writing. But I have to admit, the moment I began, I started escaping into a different world and forgetting about my lack of motivation. Hurrah for me!

But the biggest insight I’ve gained, however, is that perhaps I need to rethink my strategy of completing this story in time- I realised that I keep looking at the word count and counting how much I’ve done for the day and how much more till I can stop. Perhaps I should change my focus and instead turn to milestones instead- writing till I reach a certain point in my story where I know I’m getting somewhere.
