My goal: Devote an hour a day to writing fiction.
In my last update I mentioned how long days at work threw me off my schedule. I had every intention of catching up and was off to a good start. In two hours on Thursday, I wrote 1000 words. I probably could’ve done more, but it was late and my eyes were tired.
Friday was my birthday and I spent the day talking on the phone with family and online responding to birthday wishes. And let me say thanks to everyone that wished me happy birthday. I sort of joked about it in a FF on twitter and was surprised at how many people noticed.
Now comes Saturday and after checking email, I had no desire to write. It’s a fun thing that I LOVE doing, but it still takes brain power and it wasn’t in me. What DID sound appealing was to continue watching the sixth season of Buffy that I started earlier in the week. So that’s what I did.
As a sponsor, I feel like I should be setting an example, but I also want to be honest. I totally gave in to laziness. Still, I’ve got two positives so you don’t completely lose faith in me.
My living room got a much needed straightening up while I watched TV. There’s still more to do, but it doesn’t quite look like the place was ransacked anymore.
First thing this morning I wrote. Not much, but it got the ball rolling and I plan on doing more today. I’m shooting for finishing the chapter I’m working on. That’s another 1000-2000 words I’d have to write.
Here we go!
