I’m starting a challenge for myself. I’d like to get on a streak of 2,000 words a day, and I’d like to keep it up for 30 uninterrupted days.
I am practicing the habit of consistency.
I need to produce a certain number of words this month and I don’t want to end-load the month.
I want to prove I can do it. To who? Myself. I have discipline, and it’s time I applied some of that to my writing.
It will be fun. Seriously. It is always fun when you do things you aren’t 100% sure you can do. :)
How will I handle setbacks?
Start over. The streak depends on me writing 2,000 words a day for 30 days in a row. There’s really no way around that, so if I miss my goal one day, the streak has to start over the next day. This will suck if I get to 28 days and screw up, so truthfully, the more invested I get, the more motivation I have to keep with it.
Feel free to join me in this challenge
Although I’m a notorious slowpoke of a writer (about 600 words an hour on my really good days), a lot of writers write a lot faster. I don’t mind. Brag about your 2,000 words in 20 minutes in the comments. I promise not to judge. ;)
