It’s Back, Progress Update!

I have my mojo back! I’ve churned out nearly 900 words tonight which is something I haven’t done in a while at this time of day (it is 21:30).  I was getting worried that evening sessions were slowly becoming impossible but it’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

I had done some Yoga beforehand so I could get a bit of an exercise in and to help empty my mind and I feel it has helped.  I feel very focused, more so than say 48 hours ago when my motivation went out the window, down the road and nearly drowned in the duck pond. I must refer to this post on a day when I am mostly daydreaming more than focusing on the project.

The scene I have wrote tonight will eventually become back story for the protagonist, he will learn more about why this character behaves the way he does.  For now this characters, lets call him Mack, is currently alive and in a state of mourning, his brother has done something terrible and Mack thought he’d feel better after his brother’s actions but it leads him down the wrong path completely. In a way it feels like I’m writing dark comedies again, it’s all I wrote in University, but I’m trying to make it resonate more with the audience, rather than it just be a completely 100% silly story. The targeted audience is what I think about when I write to keep it on track but I see no harm in trying to push the boundaries a little. You’ve got to have fun writing right?

I’m going to sign off now and do a bit of meditation before bed, help keep my brain and body in sync. I wish you readers good luck with your writing tonight and will check in again tomorrow.  Night night.

    1. Thank you very much. I tell myself as long as I’m writing my story then there’s progression, even though it may be small it’s a small victory more than nothing.


    1. Hi Linda. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Yes it has been very frustating but I hope this new approach and motivation will stick around for a long time. I guess that’s half the battle with writing!
