#FirstDraft60 Day 16: Inspiration vs. Perspiration (Writing Schedules) #amwriting #nanoprep #nanowrimo
Sorry there was no Sunday Reflections post yesterday. I’ve been fighting a weather-triggered migraine all week, and Sunday it got the better of me and I spent most of the day in bed. I’m hoping that (and some good drugs) will help knock it out and make Week 3 of FirstDraft60 much better, and more productive, than Week 2 was for me!
What that means for me is that I have even more catching up to do now.
Oh, and I think I may be re-casting the template for my hero character. But I’ll figure that out when I get caught up to that day’s assignment!

Assignment 3: If don’t already have a wall calendar, print one out and hang it up. Make sure the calendar is hanging somewhere everyone in the house can see it. Write your writing schedule for every day remaining in the challenge on the calendar.
