Writing Challenge Day 30: Days Become Longer

Far from the coming to my writing desk and spewing out writing, the way I'm beginning to work is a little different. It starts with analysing a piece of literature, then down to pondering over my own notes and novel.

I don't know how and why, but some things are different - some writing has energy to it. Anyway, what I'm finding is, after a while of being at my desk, I start deepening my focus and what I'm working on. It was a little different earlier, bursts of energy, but now it requires deep work and I have to work with this now.

That's one thing that has come about with this writing challenge. Another is trapping myself into the mode of writing by either reading short stories or articles, critically thinking about them, then jumping into something of my own.

This needs more time, the depth I have to give, but also, I need sustenance, I'm trying to stick to IF which means I feel really hungry in the mornings and have to have a lot of teas which means constant going back and forth between the kitchen and my room. And that doesn't really work. I have to find a solution to this.
