This week was full of busy, busy work and had a lot less to do with my creative writing than every other distraction thrown at me. Except for a couple of blog posts and 700ish words written on A Phoenix Familiar, my productivity was near non-existent. *cry* I know, don’t sweat the down weeks, everyone needs some time off, right? Of course. But, I can’t allow myself the excuses. If I start saying it’s okay that I didn’t write every day this week, then next week will be worse, and so on until I have nothing accomplished at all. And to me, that’s not acceptable.
I knew when I started this that my Sunday Wrap-up posts wouldn’t all be full of gloating over high word counts. I knew going into this that the best way to stay on track is to have my “failures” no matter how small written down. I know that if I had just written even 500 words a day, something that rarely takes me more than twenty minutes I would have had 3,500 words. I have 700. Not good. I can’t fall back into the habit of binge writing because this is the result.
Okay, now that I have it out, I’ll move on. I’ll do as much as I can today to make up for the feeble amount I did this week and then every day this week, I’ll write AT LEAST 500 words each day. That’s one page of writing per day. If I do more, great. But I will not do less.
Check back in next week to see if I’ve gotten my slacker butt back on track.
