I Woke up this morning and found out my main hard drive is full of bad sectors, and windows nearly didn't boot, may be be offline unexpectedly for a few weeks until I can afford a replacement >.<
You have three months. “The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.”
Longer than that and it gets stale, and you end up a tourist trapped in it.
So I started writing
Then another writer I follow on Facebook (Jon Acuff) posted a little update about just setting a mundane time, for an hour, and writing. It's a little thing, coinciding with an article I read about things you didn't know Google could do, like, wait for it, set a timer.
These things have all rolled into one another. I set the Google timer, and I start writing. I don't write for an hour at a time, instead it's 15 to 20 minutes at a time. I will sometimes run 2-3 of these blocks together, other times I break it up. I still have other things I have to do, but it's given me more focus on my writing, and made me realize how to better spend time at the computer. Less time on Facebook, less time reading random articles and looking at photo websites.
