Since I returned to work a year ago, I've struggled a lot with finding time to write. A couple of months ago I decided to use the word count method to at least get words to screen (500/day or 2500/week). I will say that it works as far as getting the words down. It's still hard to make my weekly goal and so I use a lot of my weekend off writing in order to meet my goal. That's okay, because it works.
The problem I didn't foresee is that since I'm writing in such small chunks spread out over time, I tend to forget what I've written before! And I use an outline!
I really, really, really miss my younger brain that use to remember every detail!
Now...what did I just say?
Anyone else have this problem?
What do you do about it?
How's your writing life?
