I'm thirty thousand words into writing on two different book projects. This morning I skimmed through the first chapter of my first book and discovered how much my writing has improved since I began. Of course, I knew I'll be going over it and editing once I've done the first draft. But it was funny to see what I'd written just a month ago and compare it to what I wrote yesterday. The flow of my sentences and the words I chose have improved greatly.
I'm looking forward to seeing what I think a year from now. If I keep my pace of a thousand words a day I should be much improved by then. I hope I don't look back and think, "What kind of hack wrote this mess?"
