On Workflow

Some days writing is lovely and the words flow like milk and honey. And some days it feels like living in a desert for forty years.

Today I am in the desert.

It doesn’t help that I’ve finally realized I cannot take my current workflow situation anymore, so I’m setting up my novel in a new Word document and copy-and-pasting the chapters and headings into the new ‘manuscript’ template. This sets up my chapters and sections as easily navigable tabs in Word. Once its done, I should be able to fly around my document. For now, it’s a chore.

I will remember to establish a template early in my next novel to save myself this work.

Also, it is amazing what taking a couple of days away from writing does to my momentum. I grind to a halt and have to force words from my brain. Obviously, I need to stop taking such time. Ever.

    Never a day without writing a line.
