Basically, ground effect with airplanes is a feeling that the plane pushes away from the ground as it gets closer, can just float over the ground once it is in the air. It has a lot of technical stuff about what causes it, but I don’t really care. What I am talking about is that feeling that it is easier to keep writing day after day when you have been writing day after day.
In other words, easier to keep the writing aloft than stop and then have to restart. Stay floating over the runway instead of letting the wheels hit and coasting to a stop.
A ton easier.
Starting with writing is always the hardest on any project, but if you maintain a regular amount every day, the writing suddenly feels easier. It isn’t really, but it FEELS easier.
At the moment I am hovering around 3,000 words a day and it honestly feels like every day, if I had more time, I could do a ton more. I had to stop on the novel for a little bit today to finish up a couple of short stories that were due, but still managed 3,000 words on the novel and kept the flight off the ground.
So I thought I would just remind a few of you here tonight that setting a daily pace, getting off the ground and hitting that pace after a few days makes the writing just feel so much easier.
