So it turns out this writing thing is really easy.
I’m joking. I’m joking! It’s not.
I’ve just got into this thing a lot quicker than I thought I would, or that I thought was possible, I can’t remember the last time I wrote so much in a twenty-four hour period, possibly at a weekend when I was working on Situation One. The difference being that yesterday I was at work for seven hours, and then went to my improv group. The words just poured out of me in between.
No doubt that I will now spend the weekend creasing my brow, and running my hands through my hair and trying to uncramp my brain as I struggle to get beyond that first chapter. I woke up suddenly just after five this morning and felt compelled to write. Taking a queue from another NaNoWriter I propped myself up in bed and wrote another 1,200 words before breakfast.
I now feel rested for the day ahead. I’ve not got a book, I’ve not got any notes, I’ve not got my laptop, I’m just going to commute today, and then try and write hard through tomorrow and Sunday.
I’m going to see Jack White tonight at the Alexandra Palace which I am very much looking forward to. The last time I saw him (at the Apollo) I felt compelled to write a review as soon as I was on the train home. It’s just pure and hard and brilliant.
