It’s obvious to me that one big problem for me when it comes to speed is the speed at which I second guess my choices.
Today’s attempt to cross that 6,000 word barrier has been hampered at every turn by my tendency to write something, then write something else, then delete something, then delete something else, then rewrite the first something I wrote, before deleting it and starting the whole process over again.
That’s not the way to gather speed and momentum.
It’s 7:53 pm and I’ve let myself turn on WiFi on my computer so I can write this update. I knew it would be much faster than trying to do it on my phone and even though I have only written 1,225 words today, I’m still hopeful of more.
However, 6,000 words is probably shooting for the moon when I have no rocket.
For tomorrow, well, tomorrow hasn’t started yet. We’ll have to see about that.
For now, I’m signing off. I have more words to write, even if meeting the 6,000 word challenge is beyond me tonight. I’ll start this thing again in the morning and see how it goes.
First priority? Stop second guessing everything I put on the page.
