Well, I did say I needed a couple thousand words, didn't I? With some good focused writing time at tonight's write-in, I definitely got it! I ended up with 2,149 words for the day, all written at the write-in. Although I had intended to write some more when I got home, I didn't end up getting a chance, but that's okay. With more than 2k under my belt for today, I'm feeling better about my progress.
I was worried about tonight's write-in being noisy and talkative, since Zac said that one of the people from the Saturday write-in was there last week, and it was a little noisy. But there were a few less people there this week, seven of us total instead of last week's 12, so maybe some of the other talkers weren't there. The one from Saturday's write-in was the only one I think of as particularly noisy, and without anyone else to talk to, he was relatively quiet tonight.
I was pleased, because I was able to focus pretty well nearly the entire time, with a couple of short breaks for minor chatting and eating a sandwich. I was able to get well into a scene that I was having a hard time getting started. I have more to write on that scene tomorrow, but I'm in a good place with it now.
I was going to write a little more tonight, but I ended up planning out my week instead (an activity I think I'm going to start doing every Sunday night), and I'm not sorry. Besides, the scene is at a good place to be resumed easily tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow, there isn't a write-in, so when I was planning my week I made sure to mark off time for writing. I'm pretty sure if I didn't, I wouldn't get any writing time done. Hopefully marking off a couple of hours in my calendar will help ensure it gets done, as I still want that daily writing badge for the month!
