I did free up some time for every-day writing (it's approximately 1 hour every day when I'm going to work and back by tram; it's a perfect setting since it has no internet, and I have my asus eee and little distraction). Now I'm thinking I can actually do some two teenie weenie scenes a day, because, well, because.
Because this is not a contest. Because I don't have an outline. Because I'm a bit tired from all the writing. (I think I'll boost it up at 19th when my Grand Vacation starts.) And instead of that frantic rushing through the outline to make sure I pin all the plot points, I'm gonna write it sllllooowww motion, savouring every location, every by-passing character that really does nothing except catches my character's eye.
Nano I wrote thinking "OK, I'll just blurt it all out in a month, and I'll stitch the descriptive and plot-hole-mending and character-exploring stuff later on". And it turned out just fine, by the way. This one, I'll write thinking "if I am here, at this place and time, then I really must note everything that is noteworthy" (with emphasis on "noteworty"), and I'll cut stuff out instead of adding it in.
Because right now, I'm free. I don't have a deadline and I don't have a price tag attached to my writing hours. I can afford to experiment, to do it the wrong way instead of setting up writing habits and then making lessons out of them in an attempt to prove that Yes This Is The Way That Works For Me The Best.
I still can afford to write in less efficient ways.
