This weekend was a productive one. I managed to finish writing the first draft of my current work in progress, although it is shy of the word count I was aiming for. This is actually quite common for me. When I rough out the first draft, I concentrate on just getting the story I want to tell out there. It's in the second or third draft that I go back and fill in the details needed to make the story come together.

This tends to be the harder area for me to deal with. As I add in extra elements, characters or subplots, the main plot of my story tends to take some unexpected twists. Dealing with that and keeping it all under control can be a struggle some days.

This is also the area in where I have to keep my motivation up. Now that the story is all out on paper, my body and mind crave a break from it. This tends to be a good thing as long as I don't allow the break to last too long. That's where all my motivational factors will have to come in and crack the whip.

So here I go. Rough draft two begins today.
