Day 134 – Staying true to the process

Day one hundred thirty-four of my 365 Day Writing Project.

Words for Days 131, 132, 133 and 134: 2,200

Finding time to write over the weekend was especially difficult. Life gets busy, but a writer still needs to find time to write. On Saturday, I only wrote about 100 words. But at least I wrote.

The story I am writing is building up to the apex. Hilariously, I still don’t know how this book is going to end. I have a general idea about it of course, but I am unsure about how it will all shake out.

I’m trying hard to stay true to the process. The control freak in me wants to mash, mold and force it into the outline of the story I originally envisioned. But I won’t. During my writing process over the last several months, I have let go and allowed the story to evolve organically. In many ways, it has been an interesting ride. I have learned a lot. Now that the story is nearing its end, I choose¬†to continue the same spirit of the process. Let’s just hope it works out.
