I am working on my novel now. It took some days before I managed to begin, but now I have been sitting with it for the last five days. It feels good! Though one get tired doing it. Word-tired! Have to do something totally different to relax. Like taking a walk, or a bike ride. [...]
Monday, 29th - reached my goal on CampWriMo, 30 000 words. Exceeded it with 184. Was writing between breakfast and lunch, which was awkward and unusual, but nice to be free from the pressure of "must-do" for the rest of the day. Had been biking 8,5 kilometres in the morning, and was gallivanting around [...]
What do I do, when I don't do, what I should do? I could say I hibernate, I almost do. Lingering time with thousands of thoughts in a never-ending story. Better to run, to hide, to be on my own, when things go wild, inside. I think I do.

I didn't make it today. Couldn't write all of the nearly 1700 words that were left. Maybe I had if it hadn't started burning on one of the balconies here. Such an exciting life... BUT! I wrote 955, and have now only 700 words remaining. And I know with what I will begin writing tomorrow! [...]
For two days I have been reading all that I have written for CampWriMo/July. AND edited! Not so much deleted anything, well, a little here and there, but instead added texts. Here and there. I have moved a couple of scenes to other places, and also moved and changed within paragraphs and sentences. As a [...]
A very pleasant feeling filled me this evening when I finished writing the scene that was due for today. Not having to invent something only to score more words. Just writing until the end of the scene - and then, nothing more. Five hundred and twenty words - that's all right.
