It's coming on. Right now I'm having to push back from wanting to work again on August Rock but the first draft of A Cornish House must be complete before AR receives another look.

It's been good to see how the other racers are doing. The Friday coffee break at Kate's, http://chicklitworkinprogress.blogspot.com/ is very motivating for me. I couldn't limp in there not having reached my goal of 5000 words. Next week must try and do better though. A few days I felt I was beginning to get into the groove then I let myself be sidetracked! Not good enough. Must find focus.

Thanks for the egg-timer tip Liz! I'm going to try it later if I'm still lacking motivation.

I'm spending today doing research so hopefully that will inspire me!

Have a great weekend!

Keep going, Liz. You're doing far better than I am - oh, and ignore any less then encouraging comments coming from other sources - how dare she/he/it!

Liz - thank you so much for the tip. I didn't use the egg timer, but I did look at the project in smaller chunks.
I am very easily distracted - and American Pop Idol was on the telly, so I yo-yoed between my desk and the living room, and gradually clocked up a couple of thousand words!
As I am getting closer to the end, though, I am finding that I am rushing things a bit. Is that a bad thing? I know I will go back and edit it and it will be much better anyway....
Should I slow myself down?

I would value your advice!

Thanksx
