My goal this week was to have no goals. My hope was to take the pressure off and see what happens, and it worked. On Monday I pushed through and finished chapter 9. I also went through half of my other book on one more quick edit.
Sometimes you just need to get started and the flood gates open, but just like a flood, the result won't be pretty and you always have a lot of cleaning up to do. That's how I feel about chapter 9, but at least there's something there to clean.
Here's to writing chapter 10, but it's not a goal. I just want to write it and maybe chapter 11 as well.
Totally forgot I signed up for Nicole Ducoir's Bernard Pivot Blogfest
