This year has turned out to be my lowest word count year since I started publishing in 2012. I’m not happy about that. I want to turn that around and I still have time.
I am a natural procrastinator. I tend to have to work with my rhythms or I crash and burn. I’ve had to admit my schedule has not been working. I mean, it’s kept my monthly word count a little more consistent, but my overall word count is down. By a lot. I have really counted on those few high intensity work days to kind of make up for the low times and the schedule put a stop to those 16 hr days. Sounds more balanced but it’s been really bad for my word count!
On that note, here’s the plan for the rest of the year: Use timers to try to get enough writing done each day to reach and maintain a daily average of 2,995 words. That’s really the sum total of my plan. :)
