Have you read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield? If you have, then you know what I’m talking about when I say resistance is killing my momentum on this book.
I’ll get around to updating yesterday’s post with my final numbers (not any better than where I left it, really), but for now I’m just going to get started with today’s writing if I can. I was supposed to start at 10, then anytime after, then at 11, I was definitely going to get started, and here it is 11:39 am and I’m writing this instead.
I have a little over two hours until I have to stop for something, at which point it’ll be a while before I can get back to today’s writing.
Today I expect myself to write at least 1,557 words, and then catch up as much as I can from my previous days’ word counts. All that will take well over three hours, so I’m not concerned at all about my goal to write for three hours.
A few really good days of 4,000–5,000 words would get me to the end of this book I’m working on, so that’s what I’m going to try for.
Which, I know, sounds really dumb when I can’t even reach 1,557 words every day, but what else am I supposed to do—just give up? I don’t think so.
Anyway, off to write before I run out of time. I won’t bother updating probably until later today. I want to stay focused on the writing.
