About pushing myself to write more: trials and experiments, successes and failures.
Day 27, 28, and 29 of No More Zero Word Days
An update about my writing streak: no more zero word days.
Days 25 & 26 of No More Zero Word Days
Day 25: 126 words Day 26: 79 words
Day 24 of No More Zero Word Days
I finished day 24 with 121 words written, although after some major cuts in the middle part of the story, I ended the day at a net word count of -2,618 words. If only there weren’t a negative sign before that number… Eh. I’m too tired to care.
Day 23 of No More Zero Word Days
An update on my daily writing and word counts.
Putting Things Off; Day 22 of No More Zero Word Days
Sometimes there are reasons for putting things off. I’d like to think I had reasons today. I did one 5 minute session this morning, which lasted 15 minutes and got me 89 words. So, yay! My daily writing streak is 22 days long. That, unfortunately, was the only 5 minute session I did today. I’mContinue reading “Putting Things Off; Day 22 of No More Zero Word Days”
Day 21 of No More Zero Word Days
Yesterday was the first time I wrote, met my 50 word minimum, then ended the day on a negative. I happen to know I wrote approximately 86 words, then knocked myself down to 66, then -289, then came back up to -22. That’s where I ended the day. Success, regardless of final count. The deleted wordsContinue reading “Day 21 of No More Zero Word Days”
Progress in Small Steps
When you try, try, try again, you sometimes hit on something that works. I might have done that. :D
Day 19 & 20 of No More Zero Word Days
It’s time to improve upon my mini habit goals. I need more words! It’s time I found a way to get them, in a non-overwhelming way, because apparently, I’m easily overwhelmed.
Day 18 of No More Zero Word Days
Day 18 has been one of those days that would have been, without a doubt, a zero word day, if not for my desire to keep my streak alive, and my mini sized requirement. I had just enough willpower to get 52 words out, and that was it. I have to delete more. I haveContinue reading “Day 18 of No More Zero Word Days”
Day 17 of No More Zero Word Days
Finished another successful day. 168 words, I think, although I’m pulling that number from memory. I squeezed out 41, then got on a bit of a role as I tried to get the next 9 so I could call it a day. :) I was (am) in quite a lot of pain, and I’m justContinue reading “Day 17 of No More Zero Word Days”
Day 15 & 16 of No More Zero Word Days
The streak is still alive.
Day 14 of No More Zero Word Days
Writing daily. Day 14. Did it.
Day 13 of No More Zero Word Days
Thoughts about day 13 of my current writing streak and other stuff.
Day 12 of No More Zero Word Days
I’ve been writing daily for 12 days now. Yippee!
Results vs. Intentions
Summary of yesterday’s achievements instead of a guess about today’s.
Today’s Count: 289 Words
It took an hour of timed writing, but I wrote 289 words on the cursed novella. Think “curs-ed” not “cursed.” :D Anyway … not that unhappy with that because at least it’s progress and I’ve managed to keep my “no more zero word days” streak alive for one more day.
Stuff Happened … Writing Didn’t
It’s a job, but you wouldn’t know it this week.
Weekend Challenge—Finish the Book! Saturday, Part 2
Another update on day 1 of my personal challenge meant to get me to the end of my book ASAP. ASAP apparently = As Slowly As Possible.
