So, I’m behind. Let’s pretend to be surprised. But I plan to get back on track tomorrow (Monday), and I’ll work hard for it. By midnight tonight, I expect to be at 256,000, the lowest word count that I’ve yet have had this for month (per day) but I’ll overcome it. I’ve got a new story that I’m working on and I’m excited about it. It’s going to go great and I’ll be working through it for all of tomorrow, and because it’s 50,000 I’m very hopeful that I’m going to finish it, as I need 300,000 by the end of tomorrow.
This is getting harder. I knew that it would, but that doesn’t make the simple fact of it any easier. It’s easy to sit down at the beginning of the month and set yourself a goal. In the first week, when you’re full of energy, it’s easier to stick to that goal. It’s when week 2 comes around that you feel that subtle something deep down, that says that you don’t have to write right now, and that there will always be more time to do it.
I say no. I say that the time to write is now. I say that there are no doubts allowed and I will continue to write on throughout week 2, and with any luck, I will be on track by the end of tomorrow (Monday). If not that, then I plan to finish this 50k piece by before I go to sleep Monday night so that I can get on track for whatever I decide I’m going to do afterwards.
Enter week 2!
