I got 30k on the draft of a novel today, finished a short story due for an anthology I’m hoping for, trashed, then rewrote a story for one due at the end of the month.
All I have is time.
I’m supposed to have an event this weekend, but with our numbers in Utah going up, that might not happen.
So I’m doing the only thing I can control. I’m writing…a lot.
I’ve written 6 short stories in the last 2 weeks with an average word count of 3k.
There is nothing else for me to do but write, read, fix dinner, and help my wife and kids.
This may lead to being exhausted, but as the month moves along I feel good about writing as much as I have. It’s productive and it keeps me from thinking about what’s going on politically as well as with the virus.
I’ll keep writing and submitting forever.
I have nothing but time.
