Today is Saturday, which tends to be a rather busy day for me, so I will confess I didn’t get quite as much writing as I was hoping I would. Saying that, I still got my wordcount done, but I didn’t get ahead as I have been doing for the last week.
For reference, I will probably be taking Sunday off tomorrow. It’s really helpful for me to have one day a week off. I can take time to ruminate about where I want the story to go next as well as just rest my creative mind.
I haven’t been asking this, but for those who are doing this challenge, how are you doing? Do you think it’s more difficult to complete this challenge in November or in July? I’m curious to hear your thoughts.

Tips: When writing, never second think yourself. Go with your instinct. If you have an idea for a scene, write it, don’t go through all the positives and negatives of writing that scene. You can figure that out later in rewrites.
Extra notes: Is it just me, or do you drink a lot more water in summer? I feel like I’ve been drinking way too much lemon water recently.
