Had a very busy day today working from home on my various projects. Started Nano at 3 pm. Did not feel like it at all. Had written notes last night about what I wanted to write and so was able to sit down and very quickly get back into it. Already was much easier writing today. Was more in the zone and not flicking onto the internet every few minutes.
The best part is that this process really works for me. I had an idea of what this chapter was going to be about, but just throwing down words without thinking too much means that now I have much greater and depth about what to do with it. Have a clearer idea of how to structure it and what needs to be in and what needs to be out.
