The last year, I have been lucky enough to have time to write almost every day. The last few weeks though, have not been like that. We are moving to another city in four days, and even when I have time, it is difficult to focus on writing for several hours each day the way I am used to.
I have a strategy though. I spend more time planning what to write, and I try to focus on only a few things each session. It makes the barrier to sit down very low, and this way I’m not so easily overwhelmed.
Having known about the moving for half a year, I have tried to time the writing process with accordingly. Working on the 4th revision as I am now, means that a lot of the big stuff is figured out. I can easier get into the story and it is also easier to put it down without loosing a lot of unwritten thoughts.
This summer I will keep to this slow motion editing. Hopefully this will keep my motivation up and lead to steady progress.
