|Jupiter and three moons, taken by Susan from our flat.|
This entry is for me. A record to remind myself that things are getting better.
Last week I started writing everyday. My target set at 200 hundred words. Set low because I still can't face the prospect of writing more without fearing I've lost what it takes to write. Even though rationally I know one just sits down at the keyboard and type.
In an ideal world, the words will flow. They don't have to flow fast, but practice and they will come. One after another.
It's almost like magic, but really it's just about letting go and being creative. Making stuff up as you go along. Like we did when we were children, telling ourselves stories as we played. if you can do that then the words come out.
So last week I started. I managed to write new words for my stories. I recorded a total of 2,436 words. I also wrote some non-fiction words, which I haven't counted up yet. So I'm pleased.
Now I start week two.
