Writing about Hard Work


Writing does seem to have opened up yesterday, I managed 1300 words and counting, but it was laborious, hard work.

Someone I was talking to yesterday mentioned that I should include my blogging efforts within the said word count, but I disagree. When I said 1000 words a day, I meant fiction. If I can’t manage that, too bad, but I can’t possibly fill up the gap with all the stuff I write otherwise, my blogs, e-mails and so on.

It is a daily struggle, one I intend to win, irrespective of the cost. I have finally got a book I wanted as research material for one of my projects, so things should go better from here on out.

It is a gloomy, fuzzy day here in KL, and all the greenery surrounding my apartment looks dull and uninspiring. But it is sunnier inside my heart than it has been in a long time, and for that I’m thankful.

  1. Oh, if I counted blog posts then I would totally rock. But blogging is not fiction or memoir and I don’t believe in combining genres to reach a mythical word count. Daily Word Count is subjective and relative.

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !
