This month I’m having my own little “writing marathon“.

Last week, in update #2, I shared how I was struggling with some difficult subject matter. It was tough, but 3,000+ words later I made it through. I broke one of my rules by rewriting quite a bit of it, but it’s what helped me get through. So much of my writing comes out as I rewrite. I process as I write and rewrite and rewrite some more. “They” say not to, but sometimes I just can’t help it.

This week started slow, but looking at how far I’ve come, I’m not going to beat myself up about it. Time is the biggest thing that holds me back; I have to really work to make time for it.

But the best part is that I’m having fun writing. It’s not burdensome for me. As crazy as the process makes me, I enjoy it so much. Maybe that means I’m crazy?! Oh well.
