That's what I felt today, when I got ready to start on day two of the challenge.
Not because I discovered yesterday (in my time zone) that day two had already started, but because I had work to do for other people, and - according to the challenge - I had to write for myself first, before any ghostwriting or other things.
I had planned to watch all the videos of Michelle Spiva's new course about Creative Writing for Kindle, but I decided to just write away and save time.
This is what I accomplished:
Scene 2 and 3 Done
I had already written scene 1 earlier, when I got the idea for the novella, and instead of doing more research about my characters, I decided to just write - and then watch the rest of the videos later and do the questioning of my characters tomorrow.
And I wrote scene 2 and 3, 575 words total, in less than 20 minutes.
Normally, I don't do what I tell people to do. I teach that you should write first and edit later. But I write and edit at the same time.
That works for me, when it comes to non-fiction, because I know what to write about, and it doesn't take me out of the flow.
But for fiction, I prefer not to let anything between my mind and the words on the screen, so I decided not to do any editing at all - except for the few going back to correct a word I couldn't help myself from doing.
This means that scene 2 and 3 will need a lot of editing later on. But, ha ha! By re-reading scene 1, which I found next to perfect earlier, I also spotted a lot of wordings that could be improved.
I saw yesterday that Michelle Spiva also created a challenge - to write and upload (as in share) at least 1,500 words of fiction. I'm not going to join that challenge, because I don't want to share my work, before it's finished.
Have you joined Tiffany Dow's challenge? If so - how are you doing?
