This is a fascinating peek into Day #2 of the "ghost" writing novel process of Dean Wesley Smith. Day 1 had a grand total of 7,625 written words!  Day 2 is much of the same.

 

Breakfast, e-mail, writing, mail pick up, lunch, writing, break, e-mail, writing, break, nap with cat, dinner, dishes, e-mail, tea, writing, break, sorting collectibles, tea, snack, writing, watch TV, writing, bed.

 

Day #2 total? 7,734 words. Grand total in 2 days? 15.359! And we say we don't have time to write?

This fun and informative infographic sums up several of my pet peeves. If you are going to write--then please learn proper grammar! When I am reading and encounter glaring grammar errors, I just close up the book and put it away.

 

It does take some practice, but this very important part of writing can be accomplished. If I see one more YOUR for YOU'RE or  IT'S for ITS, I think I will just scream!

 

This graphic can be printed out and tacked up on your wall for easy viewing and consulting while writing. Enjoy!
