Today I wrote 3,392 words, but I had to cut 624 of them and set them aside for a potential second book because the partial scene didn’t move the plot forward. 🙂 Staying focused in writing is important.
I found some new music to listen to while I write. You can enjoy it, too, by clicking “here”.
It’s a lyrical cover for Studio Ghibli’s musical scores, but with a jazzy twist. I find the music relaxing and encouraging. I’m also quite fond of the movies Studio Ghibli has produced.
