2368 words. 26044 words total. This day’s session brings my average words per day to 1860. This session was a little under an hour. Started late again. This is probably just my best writing time. At least for writing prose.
What helped today:
Writing about creativity and being creative. I’ve been reading Jeff Goins’ Real Artists Don’t Starve, and the chapter I read today talked about collaboration as a key to success for artists. I wrote an essay about the various collaborations I’ve been a part of throughout my creative life, especially when I was younger and was rapping. At one point, we had our own rap crew in our neighborhood. During those days, I also got into writing “more conventional” poems as well. Plus, I was outwardly weird. So, I fit the part of an artist as a young teenager. I think the writing flowed really well, thinking about this stuff. I can’t wait to revisit this particular piece next month or after, when I get into the editing phase of these pieces I’m writing this month.
What I discovered today:
I should have run away and joined the circus.
What else was good:
Enjoying the process.
