Writing Can Be Murder

Eight Weeks to the Finish Line

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 7:09 am

Over the next eight weeks I plan to write the damn novel that I keep starting and stopping.

At the same time, I’m in training since I’m going attempt to complete a half-marathon on October 18th. (Which in my world means I’m going to run, jog, walk, shuffle, crawl — hell, I’m not above piggybacking on some hapless soul).

For those of you who boast a measure of sanity and have never wanted to tackle such insane tasks — that’s 80-90,000 words and/or 13.1 miles.

I’ve noticed over the past two months (yay me for getting halfway through my marathon training!) that I “run” (if you could see my tortoise-like pace you’d know how loosely I use that term…of course you’d also have tears streaming down your face from laughing so hard) like I write.

Alone.
Gritting my teeth.
Wondering why the hell I’m doing this.

So I thought it would be an interesting experiment to keep a “training blog” (ha! I’ve coined a useless phrase) of both projects over the next two months.
