Update Rownd 2 April 11 #row80
The challenge is turning out to be a wonderful encouragement for me. The people have been helpful and kind, and I'm gaining discipline in my writing.
At 2pm, I get offline and take one solid hour without interruptions, and write. It often stretches into longer periods. During that hour, I create new work. The other time periods are for editing and tweaking.
It isn't as hard to write as I thought it would be. For whatever reason, I thought it would be hard for me to be creative while a clock was ticking, but I've been surprised each time the alarm goes off and the time is up. I'm always eager to get back to it once I reset the alarm.
I'm enjoying writing again, and that is the biggest surprise of all. I've written four chapters, edited multiple pages, written six blog articles, critiqued three chapters for my crit group, and created a video for my company. I also studied a book on how to write non-fiction. A productive week, and one whose lessons I look forward to repeating. Thanks to the Row80 crew for putting this idea into practice.
