Productive today on almost every front, though the old stretched thin over too many places thing definitely applies. I’ve been thinking a lot about adapting Hammercalled to the Legacy of Eight setting, and also did some NaNoWriMo writing.
I didn’t get enough progress to be on track, which would be less bad if I weren’t already behind, but I feel better about what I wrote today than I did about the earlier writing. I’ve basically come to the conclusion that only elements of the first draft are salvageable, but I’m just going to write around them to get to the 50,000 word mark.
I guess I’m realizing why phenomenal output on paper doesn’t correlate to success in practice. I think I’m at something like 2000 words a day average if you count all my output-able stuff across all disciplines, but splitting that three or four ways leads to pretty mediocre outcomes.
Of course, I’m also trying pretty hard to focus on getting my readings done for my classes, which will be the first step to focusing more wholly on just the few things that I’m writing.
