I don’t think I went into this in my last post, but I have recently made a small change to my 2,000 words a day plan. I’m aiming for 2,400 words a day instead. Not because I want to actually average 2,400 words a day, because that has not changed. A 2,000 words a day … Continue reading The new plan for 2,400 words a day
I fail a lot. I think the overwhelming number of posts I’ve put on this site where I candidly admit that I haven’t reached some goal I’ve set for the day tells that story well. Night before last, I failed again. I didn’t write 500 words or 2,000 words, and I didn’t end up staying … Continue reading I fail a lot
Fiction words, that is. I’ve written plenty, many days, that probably put me well over 2,000 words in general. What I haven’t done is write 2,000 words in a day since November 29, 2017 on any of my books or stories. But today is looking like the day I break that streak. I’ve already written … Continue reading Today is the day I’ll write 2,000 words for the first time since November 2017
Today I’m writing. I’ve written something every day for seventeen days now, in fact. Some days, of course, were longer than others when it comes to how much time I spent writing. On the whole, though, I’ve stuck to my 12–4 schedule and created a bit of a routine for myself. The fact is, I need … Continue reading June 1–15 progress
Another streak! Sadly, it’s not the good kind.
My first goal for today is 1,557 words (which is my normal daily goal). Let’s see how fast I can reach it. Fast? Maybe not. But… Progress— 10:51 am: 13 minutes, 87 words. 11:35 am: 30 minutes, 214 words. 12:25 pm: 29 minutes, 175 words. 2:34 pm: 7 minutes, 78 words. 3:28 pm: 11 minutes, … Continue reading How fast can I reach 1,557 words today?
I’m trying to come up with my goal for today. I think I’m done with the catch-up attempt for hours because I’m further behind now than I was when I started yesterday. On the other hand, this morning, I’ve already written for 13 minutes and put down 87 words of stuff. It’s a start. I’m … Continue reading Not going to give up without a fight
Since I didn’t succeed yesterday in catching up, I’ve decided to give it one more go. Today I will try to accumulate 6.7 hours of writing. That’ll give me today’s three hours, plus catch me up with Saturday’s and Sunday’s three hours each. Whew. I’m only doing this because I need some way to decide … Continue reading It’s catch-up day redux! Goal: 6.7 hours of writing
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m trying to write for three hours today, catch up yesterday’s three hours, and finish Saturday’s three hours. That means I’m trying to accumulate 7.484 hours of timed writing today. Progress— 1:18 pm: finished a session of 61 minutes, wrote 135 words. 3:13 pm: ended a short session … Continue reading It’s catch-up day! Goal: 7.484 hours of writing
You know how you make a plan and then immediately feel resistant to actually following through? Yes, well, that’s been happening to me. So instead of letting myself get too far down that hole, I’ve decided to make a few adjustments to the plan. I wrote a long post about this and then decided to … Continue reading Facing resistance and adjusting the plan
