I’ve been making progress on my second draft that feels more like a rough draft. Each day, I’ve set an alarm for an hour and I end up writing 1,100 words in that hour. In the past week I’ve hit 9,000 words.
It’s been a week where I feel better about my writing. I’m happy with the new outline. It’s not super detailed, just a series of paragraphs of where I want the story to go.
What I’m thinking is that I need another writing partner or two. Other writers and artists whom I can bounce ideas off of. Someone who can hold me accountable. Now that I’m writing more, there are other things that a writer’s partner would be useful for.
And with the writer’s partner, I would do whatever I can to help the needs of the writer’s parter.
It would be great to be able to hang out someone, a fellow artist, and just talk about stories. I have a friend, a writer, I hang out with at the Cigar shop and that's great. But it would be great to meet someone at a coffee shop.
