Keep Me Accountable – Day 1

After a trip down to the doldrums of not writing much, of having too much going on and not enough time to do it, of lacking strong ideas for a story and being all down and out over it, I’m back.

I’m over it.

I’m writing again.

Some of you swear by NaNoWriMo and some of you are apart of Novel Track. Some of you do both. Some of you are just looking for a place to start. Well, here’s something I’ve been told many times before. It’s advice that is the best I’ve ever been given.

YOU CAN’T REVISE A BLANK PAGE.

So… WRITE!

Between yesterday and today, I’ve written 3 pages on my new historical romance. Actually, its not a new story. I started it about four years ago. Only recently have I gotten up enough guts to just go for it and write it.

Word count for today: 468.
Total goal for the book: 80,000.

Will you join me in this writing journey?

    I need to join you since I'm working on a new story. For the moment though, I'm kind of liking that pristine white of a blank page. Putting black on it would just ruin the whole thing. Ooo, maybe if I changed the font color to pink or purple it would motivate me to write, even if the story's just not quite there yet. It would at least look pretty:-)
