this was a good week: the word bunker
This past week, I took off of work, and spent my time working on the new book. I ended up getting about 50 pages written over the past week (as of this writing) -- my goal is to get to 120 pages written in total by the time I get back to the office on Monday. The week began by my checking into a hotel for a couple of days, and then spending the rest of the week at home alone during the day, writing as much as possible, transcribing interviews, and shooting when I had the time.
Someone on Instagram called what I was doing going into my "word bunker" -- a hideout where I could just let the words come. This feels right. So here's what my week looked like in my word bunker -- whether it was at the hotel or at home. And while I'm still not as far along as I'd like, it undeniably feels like I've made progress.
(An aside: tea and shortbread cookies obviously play an integral part of my word bunker experience. Don't judge.)
I'm going back in. In the meantime, I hope you've all had a great week, too, and here's wishing all of us a wonderful, peaceful (and productive!) weekend.
