Sobriquet 41.13

Since it's late and I need to get to bed soon, I'll just say that I did get some writing done today. Like a paragraph. And it took, like, three hours. As had been the case with the chapter I wrote on Age of Iron in January and February, I find that I write at an excruciatingly slow pace. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had always aimed to write about five pages per "writing day," ever since my undergraduate days when realized that I could usually squeeze out roughly that much writing in an afternoon. Now, it seems, I am lucky to get more than a page. Still, I am plugging away at my section on The Master of Petersburg and planning/preparing for the next chapter.

I also read a bit more of Life and Times of Michael K.

For tomorrow: Read an article.


From Minxy:

Even though your pace may be slow, you're still getting it done. That's what matters. Also, think about everything you had going on as an undergrad compared to everything you have going on now...there are many differences that are affecting your writing pace, I'm sure. Worry not about the pace of your writing, or I'll have to get all cliche-like on you and talk about turtles and bunnies and really, nobody wants that. :)
