This is a repost from a 45-day daily personal writing exercise I undertook when I was both invigorated and also challenged by a major home and office move some years ago. Then and now, I still get stalled.. so.. here is the reminder…..
My writing has a program supervising my keystrokes. The installation points out typos and the occasional MIA comma in my public posts installed. And apparently, it also calculates my effectiveness in all my document drafts. It sent me a personalized email today stating this week’s yield:
8818 words written
You were more active
than 94% of Grammarly users.
Very few were written here in this column – for publication. Several hundred words, however, are sitting in the ‘draft’ folder waiting to be headlined and blossom into brilliance.
I wrote some of my bounty that Grammarly noted in response to proposals for new work requests.
Other fine words were tapped out to fulfill those orders.
Most were not immediately profitable yet served a purpose.
Admittedly, I may have been slowed by the civic holiday that transformed a good portion of the week, into a long weekend.
What stalls your writing?
Where is the snag in the process for you? At the start? Mid way? or……… In the home stretch towards a first completed draft?
Inscribing minds want to know.
