Day 19 & 20 of No More Zero Word Days

Day 19: 166 words

Day 20: 135 words

I avoided deleting what needs deleted, although I probably shouldn’t have.

I feel like the daily writing is going well, but I think I’m going to have to push myself a little to get to the point where I’m writing more each day.

The next thing I’m going to try is to set some super small goals scattered throughout the day to try to jump start my writing. At 8, 9, 10, and 11 AM, and then at 3, 4, and 5 PM, I will sit down and write for at least 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, I can stop if I want. I’ll do this 7 times during the day, and hopefully, get myself used to just sitting down and writing throughout the day again. I’ve fallen out of all my writing habits since last August, and this is a chance to start over. I would like to try this tomorrow, and as I’m writing this, that’s my plan. I’ve even set the reminders in my calendar so I’ll be notified when it’s time to sit down.

I know I said I would avoid stating intentions and focus on actions instead, but in this case, I think it’s okay. I’m not saying I’m going to write a bunch of words, or even any words. I’m just going to use what willpower I have to sit myself down at the computer 7 times for no less than 5 minutes each time.

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a year since this trouble started, but it has, and a year is plenty of time to fall out of any good habits I had going for me and fall into a bunch of bad ones.

What I do with that tomorrow is anybody’s guess. :D
