I’ve hit my word count for the week! 1872 words typed up today. I dictated them early in the week, again on a car journey. What I’ve written is not perfect, but having a deadline to write this is making me get words down quicker. They don’t have to be perfect! This is a first draft. But it still took me 90 minutes to compile all the dictated pieces together. That’s good for me, but that’s a long time to copy and paste. But copy and paste isn’t really what I’m doing. A lot of resources say don’t edit in your first draft, but I can’t help it. For me it needs to be at a reasonable level of quality. And even that is iffy and I wouldn’t want someone else to read it. But it gives me that belief that there’s something in there that could be good.
