I slowed down yesterday (day 36) and ended the day with 650 words.
I started out the day with hopes that I would go for another 4,000 word day but within about half an hour of getting up I knew I wasn’t going to be doing any such thing. I was tired. Really tired.
But 650 words is way better than some of the words counts I’ve been doing in the past couple of months so I’m still very happy! I wrote those 650 words in one leisurely session that ended up being about 15 minutes long and seven 5 minute sessions during a one hour writing block.
5 minute sessions are making it possible for me to reach several hundred words even on my worst days. Happy? Make that thrilled. ;D
I have no way of knowing how permanent this is, but I feel like I could be on to something—the kind of thing that leads to lasting changes.
