NaNoWriMo Day #3

This Way Only...

This Way Only…

Over two days I’ve put several hours work into reading and learning, and written 2305 words and I’m feeling OK about it. I could possibly have done more but I’ve never tried to ‘work’ at writing before and believe it will take some time to get used to the feeling.

It’s unusual sitting and purposely writing, then pausing and reading it again to ensure clarity rather than just sending it out into the world!

Spontaneity is my usual way of writing, just opening a document and then throwing words at it in a semi-coherent ramble, it’s worked for me so far 😉

Today’s picture writing prompt was taken at the causeway to Cramond Island, Edinburgh on a lovely day a few years back. It used to be the haunt of me and a group of friends in the 80s, we would haul some beer and food across and party all night – going our own way but one we shared with the arrow.

Have almost finished ‘Ten Things About Writing’ and have been really enjoying it, and will definitely be keeping it beside me as I explore further as there are lots of great hints in it which are always worth rereading.

I think this is all I’m going to write today as I’ve worked lots of hours and need some down time, especially time away from anywhere I can see news so I’m off to finish ‘Good Bear’ by Sarah Lean, one of the Waterstones Books of the Month.
