Will this rainy morning translate into more words?

Last night was a bit of a bust for words. I ended up with 329 net after I deleted a few of the one’s I’d written earlier.

I have this habit, you see, of writing something, then going back in and adding a line or two that takes the entire scene off track. Then I have to either incorporate what comes after or delete. I don’t know why I do this. It’s like I can’t decide which way to go with the story until I see it written down. Anyway, I’d like to stop doing this but it seems to be the way I come up with story, so I might be stuck with it.

Okay, for today, I’m going to start out with highly focused 15 minute sessions. I think anything longer is just going to invite me to do what I’ve been doing for the last 3 days—avoid writing!

I need breakfast but I want to start before 10:30 this morning. It’ll make me feel accomplished. :D


Updates

Session 1: 15 minutes, 42 words

The answer to my question above seems to be NO. :o Too much tinkering, not enough new writing. Maybe I can recover in the next few sessions.

Oh dear. I never got to a session 2. :(

It was definitely my own fault, but I am going to let it go because I really didn’t feel good yesterday. I’m hopeful today will be better and I’ll slide back into the groove I had going in the weeks before.
