Words written in March: 15,742.
Almost dead on ten times the number of words written in February, so that’s a win.
I’m no longer following the schedule, except in the most casual way. Five days ago I started following a new rule: no sweets until after I write 1,000 words.
Since then I’ve had five 1,000+ word days in a row. I do love my sweets. :)
This little routine has also helped me cut down my sweets, because I’m not exactly speedy when it comes to my words. I’ve eaten a lot fewer sweets because of that lack of speed. Nothing’s changed in how I write, and I have ended up working at it till the end of the day several times. But I’ve gotten started early every day and I’ve been doing a lot better with this routine than any of the others I’ve tried.
As I said before, I do love my sweets. :D
Might turn out to be the best option I’ve ever tried to get myself to work diligently earlier in the day.
I’m still aiming for 2,000 words a day (consistently), but right now, I’ll take the 1,000.
I’m not using timers except when I am. I guess I should say I’m not using timers to get me started or to keep me writing. I’m just using them occasionally because I sit down and I think I’d really like to use a timer right now. Hell if I know why I feel that need sometimes, but I do, and I let myself do it. Half the time, I turn the timer off before it’s even done. I don’t know why I do that either.
So, final verdict? March was better, despite struggling with a kidney stone and nearly poking my eye out. :)
Let’s see what April brings.
