Day twenty-nine of my 365 Day Writing Project.
Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
Tomorrow is the first day of school for my kids. I’m not sure how this is going to affect my writing project, but I’m sure it will. For one thing, there will be no more sleeping past 7:00am. In fact, sleeping past 6:30am will be a luxury. I should hopefully be able to start writing earlier in the evening since the kids will be in bed early. This could be very nice, but we’ll see.
My writing tonight got interesting because I ended up writing a piece within the piece. I can’t think of another time when I had to do that. The main character in the story was reading a newspaper article. It felt odd to me to attempt to write the article as though she was reading it. This will be a piece that I will need to re-work a few times. To write a fabricated article as an experienced journalist for the New York Times is quite the…stretch. It needs work, and I will be sure to revisit it tomorrow.
