    Please share your insight.
    Mornings are best for my old brain, and rough draft I shoot for 1000 on the days I write and they are crap.

    I remember one bizarre day last summer that I plunked out 7000 bad words. Sometimes the scenes really do play out and come out the fingertips. More often I have no idea what happens next, although thinking in terms of 'plot points' seems to help this time around.

    Book one I started with an arc'd out plot. Book two I am trying "discovery writing" and it's not working for me. I need to make me a plot arc. I've discovered I'm definitely a plotter.

    I'm in camp nanowrimo and writing 1000 words reliably every other day. 2018 goal was to have a first draft done for book two. I'm on track.
