Transition Day

 Two pictures above ...before and after.

Over at "Mystery Writing is Murder," Elizabeth has declared it time to clean and as usual, she's correct.

Short entry tonight because I still owe myself 750 words today.

That brings up the point of today's post : volume.  I've tried the 1200 to 1400 a day production and I'm not happy with the writing. I don't know if it is a "push" or if that volume that makes me sit too long and dread the activity. Either way, I'm not happy with weekday prose at that volume.

I'd like to ask, what are your day-by-day production targets?  I've mentioned here before that Hemingway was steady around 400. I know another writer who is a solid 1800 six days a week. I'm just curious - how many do you shoot for each day when you're writing?

Public Service Announcement: in the spirit of Transition Day, I'll be changing the layout of this bog over the weekend. There is chance I eat the history. It happens.

Also, the tone and focus will be different going forward. I will be blogging more about writing techniques, writing resources, writers on writing, and writing examples. There will be a reading list feature as well.

When I started, I didn't have much focus. This blog became a sort of public journal. I'm really not comfortable continuing that exercise. Thus, a more disciplined focus on writing is the solution. The content is more interesting that way, too.

Write well.
