The story I am working on now, I am going slower with it than I have with the last two things I wrote. I am still chugging along at around 1,000 words per day on average, but there is a lot of reflecting going on about it – there is a lot of pondering behind the scenes. I am writing in my journal a lot more than usual, and staring off into space and losing my place in conversations.
This is a good thing though, I think. It means it means something.
