Okay... The Nag checks in

I wrote 8000 words this week.

Cool, huh?

Too bad it wasn't on a WIP.

For those of you who are on Facebook, you already know why I did it. I found myself losing the joy in writing. Writing had become a chore, something I did because I felt I had to. And, unfortunately, that lack of passion was showing up in what I created.

So, I went to find the joy. I wrote something just for the heck of it. I didn't care if it was something I could sell or whether anyone but me would see the thing. I just wrote.

It was wonderful.

Hopefully I can transfer that newly rediscovered joy into my WIPs this coming week.

:::fingers crossed:::

My fingers are crossed that your short story is something that you can publish, and if not, well, I still think it's wonderful! I love that kind of writing exercise!

And your totals blew mine right out of the water!

Excellent job!

Writing your passion is important, whether it's what you planned to write or not. Your totals are great! Keep it up!
