Writing Goal: Week 1

Week 1 results of my writing goals are in. It’s Sunday evening after child bedtime, and I have 1949 on the week. This is with only writing 4 of the 7 days. I’ve decided on the weekends, instead of writing from 6:55 to 7:25, I will write from 7:25 until whenever Punkin wakes up. This morning it was at 7:26, so I hadn’t even finished connecting my wireless keyboard before she was up and at ’em. Luckily, I was still able to write a few hundred words later in the morning while she watched Avengers Assemble on Netflix.

My days were 386, 551, 570, and 442. I am going to write a few sentences toinight and as Cory Doctorow and others suggest, end in the middle of one. I could probably write a few hundred more this evening without problem, but this is a marathon not a sprint. I’m going to save some calories for future weeks when it gets harder.

So, count week 1 as a success. On to week 2!

    Done, time for some reading and bed. Some of the 1989 Legion of Superheroes series and some more of Ultimate Sacrifice by Lamar Waldron. If you want to write something with conspiracies in it, I strongly suggest that latter. It’s got a lot of great information on how several real ones worked.
